Hello Shanti

If you want to use keys from external systems

you should

1) set "key mapping" your table(LUT) property to "Yes"

2) create inbound ports for your external systems- one port for one external system for one LUT

3) in your LUT key field shoud be present

4) configure import map for LUT by one map for each external system

5) importing data through import server - you cant use for that import manager

6) when you did import one LUT from different external systems ( different inbound ports) in your repository i will see many similar records with different keys and external systems
