I’m currently trying to export data from an old SugarCRM into SuiteCRM using SQL in phpMyadmin.
What i did:
1)Import the Accounts : OK
2)Import the Contacts: OK
3)import the accounts_contacts table : Failed…
I read that just doing this in that order should have created the relationship right away but it didn’t.
It seems that the contact_id and the account_id are changing once in Suite
PS: Before importing the accounts and contacts, i made sure that they were all unique by using the UUID() function in php
Do you have an idea to make the relationships work ? I cannot manually redo all of them DB is too big
What is your SuiteCRM version?
Are you importing directly into the database (with mysql command-line, phpMyAdmin or similar), or are you using the Import function inside the app?
I would recommend doing it directly in the database, that way no IDs will get changed.
I found it !
I managed to create a SQL command that works for me and efficiently links the contact to the accounts
INSERT INTO accounts_contacts (account_id, contact_id)
SELECT accounts.id ,contacts.id
WHERE accounts.name= ‘XXXXX’ && contacts.last_name= ‘XXXXXXX’
Then i just execute this command to create a unique id for this table
SET id =UUID()
WHERE contact_id =“XXXXXXX”
These commands work with limited conditions ( I wanted to work on a limited amount of contacts and accounts) but i haven’t got the mass importation conditions figured yet
Btw i’m importing from phpMyAdmin .
