A Data Connector import rule can import regular (single) data classes and multi rowed data classes. A regular data class, for example, could be a computer's Serial Number. A multi rowed data class, for example, could be any number of Cost Items that are associated by a foreign key to a computer. This article provides two examples of how to import multi rowed data classes. First, Cost Items will be discussed. Second, IP Addresses will be discussed. These instructions can be easily adapted, however, to any multi rowed data class that the customer wishes to import. Note: This article assumes that the customer is familiar with creating and configuring Data Connector import rules, and therefore skips some of the otherwise necessary steps to fully set these up. For more information on how to use Data Connector, refer to the following article:
