Import Assets with Asset Management Tools in Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations

Asset Management tools in Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain lets you plan and track costs and history for individual assets deeply integrated into all the domains of your ERP.

I was looking into a recent issue when importing data using the Asset management Assets entity, and it presented me with an interesting challenge. After I imported the assets, the Manufacturer was not showing up in the user interface. This intrigued me because I was able to verify that the MODELPRODUCTID field was populated in the DMF staging table. The D365 label on MODELPRODUCTID is "Manufacturer", but the field PRODUCTID also had the D365 label of "Manufacturer".

This leaves us with the following valid combinations of these three fields:
