Posting this question on behalf of the Archives' Summer Intern, Aida Garrido.


I'm testing the following feature with one archival object: https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ArchivesSpaceUserManual/pages/1173913646/Import+Archival+Objects+from+Excel+or+CSV+File+from+v2.8.1?focusedCommentId=2870837249#comment-2870837249

I want to add an item to a series, i.e. an archival object child to another archival object. I get the following error:
Row 6: ERROR Row 6 will not be processed due to errors: Input resource's URI [] does not match row's URI [5244]
I am ingesting at the level of a series, whose internal resource record number from URL is 5244.

That is the exact number I wrote for the resource URI column. For hierarchical relationship I wrote down 2 and for description level I wrote item.
>From the error I get, it looks as though the import is not picking up where I'm ingesting from - the brackets are being left blank.
What might I be doing wrong?
I have also attached the excel sheet I'm importing.
Thank you.
