Connect erp product import

Is it possible for you to elaborate on this statement?
“Use the field template identifier value from product settings if the field template identifier is not specified.”
Taken from Here

Im trying to import a baseproduct that already exists in litium but it throws an error saying “Field template with identifier was not found…”

Do I have to specify the fieldtemplate even though its just an update?

Litium version: 7.7.1

Is this the same baseproduct as this query?

Yes, but this is more that I dont understand exactly what to make of
" “Use the field template identifier value from product settings if the field template identifier is not specified.”"

I think you have conflicting baseproducts so the one you are trying to update has a different template Id than the one existing. And the one that you are trying to store has a template Id that does not exist in the system and it throws error in this case.

“Use the field template identifier value from product settings if the field template identifier is not specified.” If we don’t have template Id on the product then it will use the template Id from the ProductImportSetting.
