I'm trying to migrate order data from an existing site using CSV files and I can't get the billing profile to relate.

In trying to troubleshoot this, I have it set just to insert a default value of a known profile and it's still not working for me. Currently, in the process section of my YML migration file I have these lines, but I still end up with <null> in the database.

  plugin: default_value
  default_value: 34338

I have also tried billing_profile__target_id and billing_profile/0/target_id instead of billing_profile/target_id.

What am I missing?

    Is it your exact yml definition? There seems alignment error. Try to align it properly. Sep 25, 2021 at 12:51

    Yml is highly indentation sensitive. Sep 25, 2021 at 12:51
  • @miststudent2011 - That wasn't exactly spaced out like I had it, but I made some changes and now that is what I have. I think the problem is in addressing the property, but am unsure how to do it correctly. Sep 27, 2021 at 13:35

OK, I figured it out. I'm new to using the Migrate system, so this may apply to anything with revisions like this, but apparently you MUST set both.

  plugin: default_value
  default_value: 34338
  plugin: default_value
  default_value: 34338

Only setting target_id fails.
