Importing Data with Excel Importer

Hello, I have a large amount of data to import into the app and I use the excel importer. The data coming in has fields such as changedBy, owner, createdDate, and changedDate. When I match those fields with the fields in the Mendix entities it overwrites the changedBy and owner to whoever imported the data and createdDate and changedDate to the current date. I am using the system members in Mendix for the changedBy, owner, createdDate, and changedDate. Is their a way to have the imported data populate those attributes or will it always change to the person importing and the current date?

Hi Andie,


The documentation states that the system members are automatically set by the server. There might be a way around it, but it would probably be faster to just use custom attributes and logic. Also, they are not supported for displaying directly in a data grid.
