Entity Splitter not generating IDs

On the data importer documentation, it says the following:
"An exception exists for when idnos are set to be auto-generated. To create auto-generated idnos within an entitySplitter, use the following syntax:
"attributes": {"idno":"%"}"
When I use this parameter, it just gives every entity an ID of "%". Seems like it's not working.
Bug or error on my end?


  • You need to set a format for entity identifiers in multipart_id_numbering.conf. The default is to just use free text, in which case that "%" placeholder is treated as a literal.
