Level Model 2 Sprint 1 - Create System Modules. Import Using Blueprint View or Grid View


Hi Guys, 

I just started with LM2, already having questions. I'm pretty sure I'll have many more down the road.


In the activity, when it says 

SYS05 Region Details module: SYS06 Country Details module:


Few questions I have:

1. Do I use Data View or Blueprint View to Import. I understand Blueprint View is used when only structural import is needed and no data.


So if I do blueprint view (I believe there is no data we are trying to import here, just structure), in the SYS06 module it creates additional line items with all the countries which I don't think is right.


What am I doing wrong in the import mapping? 


2. What is a general rule when it comes to deciding between grid import and blueprint import.

  • Hi,


    Adding what I know here,

    Choosing the import view depends on what we are trying to achieve,

    Blueprint view - Only for the structural change

    Grid View - Only for Data/Metadata load


    It seems you are trying to load the metadata(parent/code) of the country list, so you should use Grid import.

  • Thanks @VIGNESH.M thats my understanding as well.

    Can you please verify (screenshots) what is wrong that I am doing in the mapping because thats not the believe the final result should be (other screenshot).


    I believe the countries should not list up like that..


  • Hi @SatyamArora,


    What are you trying to achieve here, can you share the screenshot of the import file.

    If you are trying to load the parent/country code information in the module, then blueprint import is not the right option. As mentioned in my previous post, you need to use grid import for loading the metadata.

  • ok, I figured what I was doing wrong.

    Thanks for your help 🙂

  • I am trying to import from grid view but getting error whatever I do.

    Can anyone help me?





  • @sguptatalkingrain Not sure I understand the screenshot which you attached. Looks like you are trying to load data into a module for Region Code. Do you really need to do that? If you already have a code for Regions in a list, you should try to refer the code of the list in the module using a function rather than loading the code.

    Hope this helps


  • Thank you.I figured it out.

  • @sguptatalkingrain Glad to know.


    Keep learning and keep sharing!!!

  • Hi,
    Can you please share how you did it. I am getting the same error.
  • Hi,


    You need not to import anything in Sys05 Region module.

    Make sure that you have imported Region Flat list correctly.



    Please let me know if that works!
