Data importer - match on item_id

I'm trying to use the data importer to import metadata related to CA entities. These entities mostly do not have idnos currently assigned to them. Can the data importer match a data row to an existing entity through the entity_id field? I've tried to do so a number of times, but the data is not matched and I always end up creating false entity records.


  • Yes, you can match via:
    "matchOn": ["^ca_entities.entity_id"]

    Just tested this out and it's working in v1.7.7
