How do I use Connector Solution 6.5 to import data into a custom data class?
A Connector Solution data source and import rule can be used to import data from an external source, such as from a spreadsheet or a staging database, into custom or out of the box data classes. For example, you might have a list of smart phones in a file that you want to import in as assets. This article describes how to perform these procedures.
Note: The examples in this article assume that you have completed the previous examples from the following related article:

Part One: Create an Import File
Note: If you will be using an existing import file or staging database instead of creating one, skip to Part Two.
Part Two: Create a Data Source
Part Three: Create an Import Rule
Assuming that all the examples were followed, to see the new imported data, go to Resources > Resources > Configuration Items > Asset Types > User Defined > Smart Phones. The three new imported Smart Phone resources should appear in the list.
