Insight: Merged Import (JIRA/Database)

Hi

 

I am trying to import data from two data sources, one a set of JIRA users, then a database import to overlay additional data - so I get a single Insight Asset object that has some fields from a JIRA import and some from the DB import.

 

Both imports work fine, I get 500+ users from JIRA and 58000 from the database source.  The import matches key fields and I get 500 JIRA users with additional data, but I also get 57500 users imported that don't have corresponding JIRA users.

 

I am sure there is a simple way to do this, but how can I filter the database import such that it only imports data for users (an insight object) that already exists?

 

Regards

Hi Richard,

As the import functionality is implemented, it's not possible to only update objects. If an object is not found, it's created, if it's found it's updated.

That is annoying - any chance you could look to modify this behaviour? 

It's not something that is currently planned.

I'm referring you to https://jira.riada.se which is our open ticket system for feature requests and verified bugs. You may now view, watch, vote etc for issues reported by anyone.
You could add this as a new feature request there.

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

Best Regards
Alexander
