Error on insert with the Data Import Wizard
Answer ID 8174   |   Last Review Date 03/18/2019

Why do I receive the errors and sometimes receive multiple records on inserts through the Data Import Wizard?


Oracle B2C Service Console


We sometimes receive the error "There is an unclosed literal string" or "Unable to communicate with server" and sometimes receive multiple records on inserts through the Data Import Wizard?


If you see errors similar to these in the Error Log:

pair <c_id> is not visible looking for <FV_U> visibility...
Deadlock found when trying to get lock; try restarting transaction

...and are seeing multiple records being created during the data import process, this could be due to one of the following reasons:

  1. Data import processing limit too high. 

    To resolve this, set the DATA_IMPORT_BATCH_LIMIT configuration to a lower limit, for example 250.

    A description of this configuration is as follows:

    Limits the number of contacts processed in a single batch when performing a Data Import. Maximum is 5000. Default is 1000.

    Please note that this is an interface specific configuration and you can find it using the path: Configuration > Site Configuration > Configuration Settings > search by Key.

  2. Rules are not being suppressed. 

    If you are using a Custom Process Model (CPM) in the process, add Suppress Rules to the "save", as described here:  Create/Update Options.

  3. If you are using a CPM within the business rule, consider moving it to within an Event Handler, as there is a possibility of a loop that is creating multiple records.
