Issue/Introduction

Customer reported that Data Connector Import rule errors out when clicking the "Refresh Data Source" button when source column for the data class has a
different name than its own column name.

Steps:
1. Create a “New CSV File Data Source” under Settings>All Settings>Notification Server>Connector>Data Sources
2. Create a dummy CSV file with the following info for example:
Employee Account
nefi.garrido
doug.butler
fred.123

3. Use this CSV file for the Data Source
4. Create a “New Resource Import Export Rule” ” under Settings>All Settings>Notification Server>Connector>Import/Export Rules
5. Select the previously created Data Source. In this case we are using “User” as the Resource Type against the “Resource lookup key: Employee ID” and “Data
Class mappings for Employee ID”
6. Click on “Refresh Data Source” and the following message will be displayed: Symantec Management Server Error on the page.
