This could have been caused by selecting the option to do an I by mistake, when you meant to use Import by overwriting existing data.


A new job of "Delete Duplicate Background Data" is now available to be scheduled to run in the backend. This job is used to delete duplicate background data records. When all columns are the same for multiple records, only the latest updated record is retained. Once the job is done, an e-mail notification is sent to the Job Owner.

Please note that this needs to be scheduled either by a Support Representative, or an Implementation partner with access to Provisioning.
