Evaluating Import Processing Failures

EIM is designed to import large volumes of data. Most failures are caused by data errors. It is usually faster and easier to correct the data errors and resubmit the corrected rows as part of a subsequent batch than to reprocess an entire batch. EIM does not stop when failures occur.

Failures can occur at several steps during the EIM Import Process; each type of failure has a different cause:

None of the other steps produce failures, although any step can encounter an SQL error that might halt processing. EIM imports data on a best-effort basis, loading any records it can and ignoring records that have failed.
