Duplicated tags when I use import package from csv
« on: November 22, 2022, 04:27:41 am »
Hello all,

I have EA version 16 .

When I update requirements, into a package, by importing a csv file,
I have a big issue:

after importing the csv file I have duplicated tags with the same name in every requirement!

Imagine, for example, that I have a tag called "test_tag" with the value "value1";
and imagine that, in csv file, there is a requirement (with a certain GUID already present in EA project)
that has the tag "test_tag" with the value "value2".

After importing the csv file, I have (in the EA project, for that requirement) 2 tags with the same name!
A tag "test_tag" with the value "value1" and another tag "test_tag" with value "value2"
(so I have the tag duplicated!).

It's an annoying problem that wastes a lot of time:
imagine having to change the value of a tag to 1000 requirements!
In this case I have to do 1000 manual operations to delete the duplicate tag.
How can I do, when importing the csv, to avoid the duplicate tag?
If anyone has a solution it would save me a ton of time.

I would start by reporting a bug to Sparx, and seeing what they have to say about it.
If needed go back to version 15.2
