Importing and adding to Taxonomy Text Values


Hi MDM experts,

I have loaded a taxonomy, attributes, attribute texts and linked the attributes to nodes in the taxonomy. I also have products associated to the taxonomy nodes.

I am now importing data to populate products with the values of the taxonomy attributes. Occasionally, there are new values for the taxonomy text of an attribute in the input file.

When I import the taxonomy text for an existing attribute which already has several text values, the new value wipes out all the current values, replacing them with the new value for the import.

For example, the attribute Primary Color has values red, green, yellow. I get a product which has a primary color of blue. When I map using the Taxonomy [Text Values], the only Text value I have left after importing is blue.

I am using the Update all mapped fields option. I tried the Replace option and got the same results.

Is there a way to import additional text values and have them add to the existing list of text values for an attribute? I am on MDM version
