Is there a way to change the import add records related to another module record using information aside from the db ID. I have a unique identifier already that is provided. Exporting ID’s and matching to a csv every week is a pain in the rear.
Maybe it will help you to know that you can use whatever you want for an id in SuiteCRM, it doesn’t have to follow that normal format like a8ae045b-5229-2fcf-b1f0-5a2719a572d6
So you can simply use your own identifiers as id’s.
Or, if they already exist and you really need to match them, that should be a simple VLOOKUP in Excel, you don’t need to do it manually.
So do I just import my identifier as the ID field for the initial upload?
Many Thanks, will run with this and test.
I did exactly what pgr suggested (using custom IDs, and not the one provided by suitecrm), and it works!
exactly what we needed
many thanks to pgr!
