[BUG] Can't import all vCard | "faulty contacts"

I had to migrate to a new server with my Nextcloud. Now I need to copy all contacts from the old instance to the new one. I exported the address books via the Web App but when importing again, some of the contacts are not imported and the error says “23 faulty contacts”?

I tried the following ideas already:

  • .vcf files are UTF-8 encoded
  • vCard Versions are mixed, but all are either 3.0 or 4.0
  • I manually changed to BDAY format to ‘‘BDAY:YYYY-MM-DD’’

Nothing helped. Server log doesn’t give any error message. Any ideas how I can proceed from here? How can I debug the file to get all contacts really into new new instance?

Thank you for your help in advance.

Hi @earliestearl,

best way to get the developers attention might be to open an issue on Github: https://github.com/nextcloud/contacts/issues

Thank you for that idea. I will create an issue…


it would be nice if you would post the link to the issue here… THAT would make the solution, at least in terms of this forum as it would show there’s nothing more to do for us here.

Thank you in advance
