RSS Ingestion Overview

RSS Feed Ingestion on the NICKL platform is virtually realtime. Our API ingests all RSS Feeds frequently to ensure your content is always available on the NICKL platform. Once a new piece of content is found, the XML data is parsed and a record created in all NICKL datasources. Pieces of content are only parsed during initial ingestion, any subsequent changes after ingestion, will have to be done via a mutation within our API or manually through the NICKL platform.
