Import Jobs Initiated By SOAP Call Creating New Job Ever Time (Doc ID 2257569.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


We have automated a daily OSC import of Contact data which is initiated via SOAP web service call. We specify an existing import mapping and an existing import job name, but each time the import is executed, OSC creates a NEW import job rather than re-use the existing import definition.

The import map name is Automated Salesperson Assignment-map-2/13/17 5:37 PM
The import activity name is "Automated Salesperson Assignment

See the attached screenshot. Every day, a new Import Activity Identifier is created.

When doing exports, the system re-uses the existing job and we would expect imports to work the same way.

Is there a way to perform a data file import, using the SOAP call, and NOT have the system create a new Import Activity Identifier each time?
