Excel File Must Follow These Rules:

  • {Structure Number Attribute Id} is a required column.
  • {Attribute Id #1} is also a required column. You must batch update at least 1 attribute.
  • {Attribute Id #2...3...4...} are optional. You can batch update multiple attributes at once.

To properly identify the Attribute ID, you must go to Admin Settings -> Attributes. It is optional to use the display name of the attribute. Take Structure Number for example, you can use '8' or '8 - Structure Number', same rule applies to the remaining attributes.

You can batch update the following attribute types:

  • String - Must meet the character limit or it will be skipped.
  • Numeric - Must meet the min/max as well as the decimal placement or it will be skipped.
  • Integer - Must meet the min/max and no decimals or it will be skipped
  • Lookup - Must use the lookup code not the lookup value. You can find the lookup code in Admin Settings -> Attributes -> Edit Parameter. Take Item 22 - Owner for example, enter the value '1' for State Highway Agency. Do not use '1 - State Highway Agency'.


Important Disclaimer

  • This batch update will not trigger any of the integration services such as:
    • BrM Migrations
    • Alerts
    • Auto Rescheduler
