Insight: How NOT TO create new Objects with an Import

Hello,

i've been trying to find a solution for this but so far it's rather fruitless.

I have different sources of data linked with different imports.

In my case i would like an import to ONLY update existing objects, without creating new ones.

Is there any way to e.g. use an IQL saying "Object exists" or something like that during the import?

Thank you and best regards

Its hard to believe, that support still not resolved this basic functionality..!?

I have the same problem, from on source CSV I need update 3 containers, without creating any new objects. 

I also very much need this. Would be great to push it forward.

Hi Thomas,

It's not possible to configure the import to only update and not create. If an object is not found in Insight matching the identifier set, it will be created.

I would like to recommend you to visit https://jira.riada.se which is our open ticket system for feature requests and verified bugs. You can view, watch, vote etc for issues reported by anyone.

If you can't find an already opened feature request for this, feel free to create a new one.

If you have any issues or questions regarding this, please let us know.

Best Regards
Alexander

Thank you, Thomas, for creating this request. This is very basic functionality to choose betwen append new rows or only update existing. and  I'm surpristed, too, that it doesn't exist. We are in phase of evaluating Insight.

Here you can find the request for this feature:

https://jira.riada.se/browse/ICS-632

Best regards

I see there is no response to it even 2 and a half years later. too bad, would have needed that feature, too...
