We are trying to clear or blank out the contact userid/name from an asset. How do I create the import mapping to do this?
CA Asset Portfolio Management 12.x, 14.x, 17.x releases
By default, the ITAM data importer uses the word 'Null' to represent clearing the data from a field. In the ITAM data importer data file, add the word Null to the contactid column.
The import map file needs a minimum of a primary key field, like serial number, and then map the destination field as asset.contact.contactid field and the source field as contactid from the data file.
Note: An alternative method would be to hard code the value 'Null' as the source field in the import definition.
