Data loss in user_settings table move from to

I have noticed that there is “data loss” when moving from to to the admin profile.

(See attached image)
On the left is our production server ( On the right is our development/sandbox server we are testing the upgrade. In database update process, some data is eliminated. Please advise.

Of note, the original admin role was “CTL” “Centre for Teaching and Learning” and then updated after moving to to “James” “Holobetz”

Error, I meant updated after moving to

Hi @jholobetz,

This is a data error in your OJS 3.3.0-x (or prior) database, which is resolved in 3.4.0-x by choosing a “preferred” record from among the options. There is more detail on it it here:

Thanks for the clarification @asmecher. I was a little confused as to why it was not mirroring production when the data was transferred. It just seemed odd that the most recent update (non-NULL data) to the production ( database was not preserved in the update to But using the duplicate query Null values in assoc columns in user_settings prevent correct data reading after update · Issue #7167 · pkp/pkp-lib · GitHub @jonasraoni provided helped to verify that no other users are affected in the transfer.
