When importing Departments with Data Connector 7.5 SP1, duplicates occur.


Product defect, Etrack 3559713.


This issue will be resolved in a future version of Data Connector Solution.

The workaround is to run the Resource Merge Rule after a Department import to merge the duplicate departments.

  1. In a Symantec Management Platform Console, click on the Manage button > Jobs and Tasks 
  2. Click on to expand the folders System Jobs and Tasks > Service and Asset Management > CMDB.
  3. Click on Resource Merge Rule.
  4. Click on the Resource Type drop-down list and select Department.
  5. Click on the "Merge key" drop-down list and select Resource Name.
  6. Click on the "Save changes" button.
  7. Click on the New Schedule button.
  8. Click on the Schedule button. The merge then starts.
