    Running uSync import to bring in missing items seems to 'break' live env

    A client is about to upload 300-odd document to our Umbraco CMS which is fine, all that works.

    What I have noticed sometimes though is that a straightforward deploy to live is fine, but if anything such as dictionary items are missing and I have to do a uSync import then any content from development environment seems to come over and for whatever reason breaks the app as it cannot find the content that was there in the first place (does re-indexing or something happen?).

    What's the best process to follow to ensure it goes smoothly?What I had been doing was:

    Adding new pages or dictionary items in the back office

    Running models builder if required and including new items in the solution

    Kick off the build and if anything missing, run uSync import

    Should I bin any content from development before the final pull request and build?

    Hi Damion,

    when you import uSync will attempt to find the content based on the content items key or path, but part of that has changed it will re-create it - this might be what you are seeing.

    if you don't want the content to be synced between your dev and live, you can disable the content handler (in the config or via the back office). (see this will stop it being exported/imported as part of the process (you might want to do the same for media?).

    if you do want a bit of content/media creating but not other bits then it gets a bit more complicated - in v7 we use to have a ignore/include setting so you could just pick a bit of the content to import, but we didn't put that in v8 and it just seemed to confuse people.

    Thanks again Kevin, thought it may have been something like that but I just wasn't sure where to configure it.

    Can I ask though, should I disable mediaTypeHandler, contentTypeHandler or contentTemplateHandler?
