|Field 'ids': Unable to import row: No valid customer id, at least one is required and it should not be longer than 256 bytes. A valid customer id must contain at least one alphanumeric symbol and ids "null" and "undefined" are not allowed. : 3x||Data is missing in the import file. Verify whether all 255 lines have some value in the Ids column, so that each line can be assigned to some customers.||Check the import file data|

|Error while saving schema definition for a fixed schema import: 1x||Issue happens when the system tries to create catalog and import items at the same time. The only workaround, for now, is to try the same import a second time, then the catalog should be already created through the first import, so you can pick it in the UI and then it should work.||Try to re-import the catalog|
|Field `||The data type in the import setup is incorrect||Delete this catalog, create a new one with the same name, and repeat the import. Unfortunately, you cannot change the data type of the column once it is set.|
