Custom Import Application creating Import System Job - Records are not imported & Job Status Failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a console application intended to read a XML data file and create records in CRM.

    1. I have defined a Data map in crm and retrieving it in the code and passing it.

    2. The code executes without any error.

    3. Creates a Import Job record in CRM

    4. Initially it shows status parsing and also shows total record count.

    5. Next it shows Failed status. But when I opened Import record, it didn't have any failures & the System jobs were successful as well. 

    I am not sure what am I missing here. Please have a look at the code and let me know what is the issue in it.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Found the resolution here 

    In the code these values were different than the mapping file entries which were TargetEntityName="xrm_customer" SourceEntityName="Customer"
