Importing a large CSV file creates havoc
Before I started I had 193 tests in a group called Active and 9 tests in a group called New
I Imported CSV file with 1771 lines
I hit the Import Now button at 11:48 am (would be nice if there was some indication that it was “doing” something (revolving hourglass etc)
After a while I started getting multiple confirmation emails.
First was at 11:51 with Import ID 20143781
and another at 11:54 with a DIFFERENT Import ID 20143782
and another at 11:58 with a DIFFERENT Import ID 20143783,
and another at 12:00 with a DIFFERENT Import ID 20143784,
and another at 12:04 with a DIFFERENT Import ID 20143785,
and another at 12:07 with a DIFFERENT Import ID 20143786
The import screen was still displayed the whole time, never moved on to the “completed” screen which gives me the Import ID
Seemed to be stuck in a loop.
After the 6th email, I finally clicked the Refresh button to try to stop the madness.
Refresh took 3 minutes, and then got ANOTHER Import Confirmation email, with yet ANOTHER Import ID 20143787.
This is now a total of 7 confirmation emails and 7 different Import IDs.
I NEVER received the ‘Import complete’ confirmation screen with an Import ID, just took me to the Test Library main page and now – yes you guessed right – I have WAY more than 1771 tests. I have 12,390 tests in a group called Blank
Not quite sure how the math was done, but if it really imported 1771 tests 7 different times, then the count would be 12,397, but I won’t split hairs LOL
Is there a size limit on the CSV file? If so, should be stated some place.
Also, I think I will need your help at deleting these 12k+ tests!
