Ticket: Entry Statuses Changed On Import

Status Resolved
Add-on / Version DataGrab 4.0.5
Severity
EE Version 6.3.4

When importing a set of Entries to update specific fields, without a Status column in the CSV and not expecting the Status to change, all Statuses were changed to Open from previously set values of “Closed” or “private”. No errors were received, but Statuses are now incorrect on all imported entries. Previously, Statuses did not change if not specified.

The dropdown for Status under Other Settings should contain a “Do Not Change” option, I’d imagine?

We see there a change to Statuses in Version 4.1.0, but we’re not sure if this addresses the above unexpected behavior.

A you share a screenshot of the import config? Specifically the value of the status setting near the bottom?

And what is the channel default set to?

The Channel Default is set to Open.

But, if there are 100 Entries, with 30 set to “private” and we update a few fields on the 100 Entries, those 30 should not revert to “Open”.

Am I missing a setting?

I’m not sure I’ve changed anything that would cause this error. Looking at the code it seems to have always used the channel default status when importing new or existing entries if it can’t find another valid status to use.

Hi Brian,
The last update you shared worked for us just fine. But, I’ll replace with this latest build, as needed.

Thanks so much for staying on top of it!

Greg
