    Multiple Content with Same Name Errors

    Hi Richard

    Following our Email exchanges, I would like to first thank you for your help several times.

    I think I have found why I'm running into issues importing parent content with children as per your video. This is also noted when importing content without any children.

    If a node with a similar name exists, the import fails or marks an update instead of creating a new node.

    For example if I have:

    Parent "A" - Child 1 - Child 2 - Etc

    Parent "B" - Child 1 - Child 2 - Etc

    Seems like the import interprets the children as the same. In some cases, I have child nodes with similar names under different parents. I know it seems odd, but in this particular site, it is the case, because the children represent different data in the front end and will have different Sub-Children under them.

    This also happens if the nodes have been deleted and still exist in the Recycle Bin. I would have to Empty the recycle bin before I re-import the content.

    Maybe the import needs to target the Node ID instead?

    Thanks Tarik

    Sounds very similar to this issue posted yesterday in the "Configuration" section: https://our.umbraco.com/packages/developer-tools/cmsimport/configuration/106037-import-does-not-respect-location

    Hi Tarik,

    Make sure the id's are unqiue otherwise it sees the previous imported record and update that record.

    Best,

    Richard

    Hi Richard

    I did multiple times and it's failing every single time.

    I'm planning to give it one more try today and see how it goes.

    Hi Tarik,

    If you don't change the primary key values so they are unique it will fail.

    hope this helps,

    Richard
