WKC - Governance Artifact import option needed

when importing governance artifacts into WKC v3.5x using a csv file import, the second window asks for the "merge option" and provides 3 options to select from - Replace all values; Replace only defined values; and Replace only empty values. It would be helpful to have the option of "Add new values (records)" for instances where there is no existing artifact to update.

    Hi Michael,

    thank you for your response.

    In case there is no existing artifacts, the import process should create new artifact regardless of which merging option is selected. Merging options applies only to the scenario where the CSV contain artifact that already exist. Please see the relevant documentation at:

    If it doesn't work as described, please create support case. And if it works as described in the documentation, but still there are functional gaps, please comment hereunder.

    Best regards,

    the "Replace only empty values" function is not the same as "Add a new value/record" and what I experienced with it is that it imported all values from the CSV even if that value existed and thereby creating duplicates. A better import function for the governance artifacts would be very helpful.

    Thank you for sharing your idea. The proposed option seems it is the same as option number 3 "Replace only empty values". Please feedback if that is not the case.

    Best regards,
