"The maximum number of records allowed for each import operation is 2000. Please break your import file into multiple files containing fewer than 2000 records or use Siebel Interface Manager.(SBL-UIF-00212) "
Please advice if there is any way we can overcome this limit.
Client side import is documented in the Bookshelf 8.1: Configuring Siebel Business Applications > Configuring Tables, Business Components, Links, and Business Objects > Customizing a Business Component Field > Configuring Client-Side Import to Update a Business Component Field
NOTE: In the standard Siebel repository the BC 'Contact' is configured as an Import Object with fields defined as Import Field child objects. In standard Siebel application client-side import is available in "Contacts" screen.
The customer received the following error when importing data:

The behavior observed when trying to import more than 2000 records is expected and cannot be changed. This behavior is documented in the Bookshelf 8.1: Siebel Fundamentals > Sharing Information > Importing Data
You can import a maximum of 2000 records at one time.
If you need to import more than 2000 records at one time the suggestion is to use Siebel Enterprise Integration Manager (EIM). Currently, there is no workaround for this.
Bug 10515045 - "Maximum upload capability for the Import Functionality" has been already logged as an enhancment request with no ETA.
