Data Management Framework: Export fails with no apparent details on the cause

In a recent issue, a customer was reporting a problem exporting data using the data management framework. The issue was that during the export they were leaving the “Skip staging” option to “Yes”, which is the default option.


When the export of the entity was run, it reported that it had failed and there seemed to be no apparent reason why. However, the error was reported but it just wasn’t that obvious where to find it. If you have similar issues, then follow these points below:

Click “View execution log”


After selecting the execution log, you will not see any further details at this point. The key is to click “Staging log details”, even though on the export you selected the option “Skip staging” 


You will then see the error messages
