Why does kvstore_to_json.py fail to update kpi threshold templates?

when doing a partial backup (GUI)/restore (CLI),

it fails with the message:

 

 

process:17394 thread:MainThread ERROR [itsi.migration] [__init__:1413] [exception] Object names must be unique for object type: kpi_threshold_template. List of duplicate names: [omitted list of duplicate objects].

I tried using the -e switch documented (I tried even if it only renames services/entities), https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/ITSI/4.4.5/Configure/kvstorejson

when removing the json file that has the KPI Threshold templates, the script successfully creates/updates all other objects.

to be complete, this is the CLI call: 

 

 

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk cmd python /opt/splunk/etc/apps/SA-ITOA/bin/kvstore_to_json.py -i -d -n -f /home/<myuser>/depot/itsi/itsi_configurations/ -u admin -p <cut> -v -e dup_202208161350

 

 

 

any pointers?
