Project Plan Template support in Bulk Import Tool (Solution Starters) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings.

    When trying to use the Buld Import Tool (of Project 2010 Solution Starters), the import fails with a message "Import project exception: EnterpriseProjectTypeInvalidData".

    When the selected Enterprise Project Type doesn't have a project plan template assigned ("None"), it works fine. But when I assign one, I get the above message.

    Anyone can provide some help on that? Is an EPT with a custom template not supported in the tool?

    Thanks in advance

  • I've used the Bulk Import Tool extensively and haven't observed this specific
    issue, but it's possible I suppose.  The Playbooks tool will throw a similar
    error - usually because the GUID of the template doesn't match the new template
    in the target environment.
    You could try just turning off the EPT/Template link while performing the
    import, then turning it back on.
    Also are you importing a field such as Enterprise Project Type name that
    may be causing an issue?
