Re: TMS Phonebook - One-time Import

I just added a phonebook with your file and successfully updated a manual phonebook with a one time import.

As the entry has an "externalId" I assume its generated by a an other phonebook which has set up this

file as a source with import and export.

Can you remove the string "TMS[{DD57666A-2881-48DA-9FAB-02957DB17810}1]" from the file, upload it again

and see if the error still remains?

If it does you might want to escalate the case to Cisco TAC.

TMS Phonebook - One-time Import

In general, that should not be an issue. Tried it here with TMS 13.1.2 and 13.2.1 and it worked fine,

the manual list showed the content of the file based phonebook.

Whats your TMS version, as it looks like a test phonebook, please share phonebook file the file with us

and make screenshots of the settings of the file based and manual phonebook.

thx for the feedback, thats important, so +5 for you as well!

If you have larger files you can also import the file in your spreadsheet program (excel, openoffice, ...)

and just remove the complete externalid column)
