CDD Vault Update: À la Carte Commit for Data Import
February 29, 2012
This release introduces the ability to selectively reject/accept all events of a specific type.
Sometimes, a data import can have some unexpected (and undesired) consequences. Before today, if you wanted to prevent those consequences, your only choice was to cancel the import, correct the file and re-upload. This was fine if you were only dealing with a thousand records, but was inconvenient if you had to re-import an entire 20,000-record file just because 30 records were problematic.
After clicking the reject button, the problematic events are rejected, and all records associated with these events will not be imported on commit. Additionally, any records with related events will also be rejected, as shown above. You can of course change your mind and click the accept button prior to committing the file.
As before, after this is done, you can download all of the rejected records at once in order to fix them.
Finally, since we believe records with suspicious events are usually unexpected, these are now rejected by default.
