User Import and Field Protection (UM, RA)

"The UM SIG defined an import mechanism that will overwrite any field where there is new data in the import. That said, if the import is silent on a field, any data that may have been manually entered in FOLIO will be left untouched.

The RA SIG (1) doesn't fully understand how import is working and (2) based on what they do understand, they think this might not be enough. Specifically, they are looking for the ability to protect fields from being overwritten by the import feed if data has been modified by hand in FOLIO. This needs more discussion.

A specific use case that might require this kind of protection relates to fulfillment options. See UXPROD-241 for details.

- How does user import currently work?
- Will the current implementation suffice? Let's look at UXPROD-241 as a potential unsupported use case
- What, if anything, needs to change vis-a-vis user import and when?"
