Dataflow import issue

Hi all,


We have a dataflow for importing records from SQL server database to Powerapps Microsoft Dataverse (i.e. CDS).

In our CDS environment, we have a table with matching columns for the import. One of the columns is a lookup field (many-one relationship to another CDS table). When we refresh the dataflow manually, it fails and in the log file, we notice that the below error appears several times and only few upserts succeed and the error count shows that the majority has failed. 


{"error":{"code":"      ","message":"A record with the specified key values does not exist in "target_entity_name"}}


The error count and the number of error messages do not match. Therefore, we are wondering whether the dataflow aborts in the middle due to any limits in CDS related to the failures. Mismatch between the source and target on the lookup is expected, however we were thinking that the dataflow will anyway import the records where there is a match.


Any help or guidance on this is appreciated. Thanks.
