This option is especially useful if you want to clear all the combinations for selected products.
- New type of database connection has been added – HTTP tunnel. This is an alternative way of connecting to your database and it possesses the advantages of both direct and bridge connection.

- you don’t need to do POST \ GET operations to synchronize data with your store, all changes are real-time
- .php file is used by HTTP -tunnel, that’s why the speed of work depends on your channel speed capacity.

We are working on the improvement of connection and planning to implement caching import in the next releases.
