dataflow errors with alternate key on lookup fields

I am having persistent problems importing data from a spreadsheet into a custom entity "ProjectlinkAccount" which has two lookup fields - one to Accounts and one to a custom entity Projects. I have an alternate key set up on each parent entity.


I keep getting an error message: {"error":{"code":"0x0","message":"Bad Request - Error in query syntax."}}

The query from one of the import rows looks like this:{\r\n  "brooks_accountname": "JohnBrook",\r\n  "brooks_legacyaccountid": "16",\r\n  "brooks_legacyid": "26",\r\n  "brooks_legacyprojectid": "19",\r\n  "brooks_name": "Main Account",\r\n  "brooks_projectname": "Great North Road",\r\n  "brooks_role": "Main Account",\r\n  "brooks_accountlu@odata.bind": "/accounts(brooks_brooksaccountid=16)",\r\n  "brooks_projectlu@odata.bind": "/brooks_projects(brooks_legacy_project_id=19)"\r\n}


Should the alternate key references in brackets be converted to GUIDs in the dataflow run?

Not applicable

Same issue here. In my case one of the two lookup attribute values has been resolved to a concrete record GUID, while the other one remains in the OData query-by-alternate-key syntax. I can see this in the synchronization log CSV file which lists the errors occured. Did file a support ticket, but support seems not competent to help any further.

Has anyone found a solution to this yet? 

In my error, the following shows:

"name@odata.bind": "name(cr4_alternate_key=Ryan"
