Import Package Failure Through Build Tools - "Error : The complex data import is failed"



Loving the new Build Tools; been looking forward to using them as soon as I heard about them!


I have encountered 2 issues with the build tools:


1- When using the Import Package task, the package fails when getting to the import data stage; it always outputs "Error : The complex data import is failed". If I download the output content and run the exact same content through the package deployer on my machine, the import works successfully. It would be helpful to have an option to spit out the package deployer log files somewhere for investigation. Can I share my content with anyone to look into the issue further as to why the package deployer is failing?

2 - The timeout issue importing a package that others have already raised.


Many Thanks!
