CM9 Dataport

Hi, I'm testing CM9 (9.0.0.201) Dataport functionality, and I've come across an issue that I can't seem to get around. Every folder we create must have a Series Record. In the Help, it says not to use Related Records, but use Record.Series Record, which is what I used to use in HPTRIM 7.2.1.  However, when using dataport, Record.Series Record is not present in the Target Properties. I am not able to map a matching pair. How to I map the Series field in Dataport?

Many thanks!

I had a quick look and couldn't see it either, I might not have been included (unintendedly left out)

Do you see it has a property if you export some test data? Eg. export a few series records and see what fields are populated then we can look at those against the import fields.

I have done exports also using Dataport, and the Series field is nowhere to be seen. In fact there are also several of our additional fields which do not appear in export.

Re: CM9 Dataport

Hi, I have run into this since RM v8.1.  There is an enhancement request for this option to be made available again. I remember being able to import within Series Records in prior versions, but like Greg said, I think it was unintentionally left out.  The workaround we used was unfortunately manual to apply the series records via the client.

Here are the enhancement requests related to Series records and Dataport.
