Why do I receive errors when I import a CSV file in IPM?

  • There are two main reasons you may receive error messages when importing a CSV file:
    • You try to create an asset that already exists.
    • You try to modify an asset which is not commissioned yet.
  • Keep in mind that the CSV import is a step by step process. The system will read the file line by line and, if in the line ‘n’ you use an asset defined in the line ‘n + x’, the import will fail.
  • If a line produces an error during import, it is skipped and the CSV import continues.
  • If you encounter an unexpected error during the CSV import, try to create or update the asset using the Create Asset feature from the Asset Management page.
