2071542 - Error - Goal Import Error - Unable to add update entry because this entry can not be a child of the entry type of Parent GUID & Locale combination - Goal Management

Symptom

  • When importing a library goal file you get errors. If you get an error message that the file was not successfully imported, another common reason for failure is that the numbering scheme selected for the custom goal library is conflicting with another goal library already in the client's instance.

Environment

  • Goal Management

Cause

  • You have invalid nesting

Resolution

  • Make sure all Goal Entries belong to a valid PARENT GUID. You will need to change the parent guid to refer to a valid category.
