initial data load
There is a very common need to load initial data into a master and/or parameter entities. E.g. an Excell sheet containing list of clients or SKUs.
Direct load into custom entity tables via SQL isn't possible becase of primary keys and probably other internal logic.
For parameter entities, replication is a decent workaround: we can load data into temporary DB table, then set up mapping and run replication once.
For master entites, there are two options: either enter data manually or write custom code to load data. Both are unacceptable - we spend resources either for mechanical work or to develop the program code that will be thrown away after one-time usage.
Please provide a flexible utility able to load data into a custom entity from e.g. a csv file. No need to care about foreign keys - we can always create a file with the right foregin ids. The primary surrogate key values should be assigned in accordance with Bizagi internal rules.
