Background setup:

  1. The .csv file contains:

    name,class,family,z_resolver_group_SREL
    test_CI_01,Application,Software.Application,grp1
  2. The CI named test_CI_01 exists in CA Service Desk Manager.
  3. The group contact named grp1 exists in CA Service Desk Manager.
  4. The custom attribute named z_resolver_group_SREL exists in the nr factory.

From the bop_sinfo output, the view of the custom attribute named z_resolver_group_SREL in the nr factory is:

Environment: 

CA Service Desk Manager 12.7 Cumulative patch #1 on Windows.      

Cause:

The required parameter for the SREL attribute is missing from the .csv file.

Resolution:

Specify the required parameter in the required format in the .csv file.

In the example above, change the content of the .csv file to:

name,class,family,z_resolver_group_SREL
test_CI_01,Application,Software.Application,grp1{last_name}

Note that the difference between the original .csv file and the new .csv file is the addition of "{last_name}" to "grp1".
