What is a critical error in the product feed validation dashboard?

Overview

During your product feed import Criteo will automatically check for each product in your feed that the product data:

  • Is consistent
  • Doesn’t miss any mandatory attribute
  • Is well formatted

For each of the product data checks that Criteo runs errors can be flagged, if the number of products with the same error is above a defined threshold the error will be critical and you must fix it in order to allow Criteo to import your feed.

The below table shows the different data checks and the threshold for each check.
