Import merge_on_idno duplicates are not permitted.

Ver 1.7.8

Data Import with "merge on idno" works for objects with IDnos format 3.elements: LIST, LIST, SERIAL,
but for objects with IDnos format 4.elements: LIST, LIST, SERIAL, SERIAL : [Error] Could not insert new record for object: Identifier ABC/DEF/1000/1 already exists and duplicates are not permitted.

3.element IDnos are default in multipart_id_numbering, and 4.elements IDnos are indyvidualy defined in that config file.
I cant find any solution.


  • I want to add a second material type for existing objects but my import returns that error for some objects (with a little bit more complex Idnos)
