CMS CSV Import - "The item does not exist" when it does

Hello again,

I’m trying to import about a CSV with 68 entries into my CMS with 3 separate reference fields, everything gets imported but starts failing at the reference fields. For a brief second I see it being correctly referenced only for it to disappear shortly after and being replaced with the message “This item does not exist in [collection name]”. I’ve tried adjusting the text in the CSV cell to use the “Name” spelling and I’ve also tried using the “Slug” spelling but neither work. This seems more of a bug to me because I never had any issues with this before.

Hope this gets fixed or looked into.

Edit: When I delete and manually write the exact same thing in the import field, then magically the error disappears and it can be found again. But doing this defeats the purpose of an automatic import.

Edit2: I tried to just import anyway and it seems to all work fine so this seems like a display error to me only. Should still be looked into though.


I’d video it and report it to support, they can confirm whether it’s a reproducable bug, and let you know if it’s known. If it is, they’re the only ones who could do anything about it.

Make sure you try turning off all of your browser add-ons too, just to make certain you don’t have something interfering with the react code.
