Following on from this thread , I'm uploading a few thousand matches with umpires to the existing database, but need to make sure the match details in my new upload are identical to the existing matches, to avoid creating duplicates.
I'm trying to find where the "Match type" for each match is listed. Apart from manually clicking into each match, am I right in thinking that the only report with this info is the "Match Draw" report? And this is limited to 400 matches?
It won't create a duplicate if you don't get the match type correct. It will just overwrite the match type with whatever you provide.
I kind of expected that you know what match type each of your games are already since you would have provided this when you originally uploaded the season's fixtures.
Do you still need the match type info?
Assuming you do, you can add a &limit=999 to your URL to fetch 999 entries.
If you need more than this then you will just need to limit the date range to say half your season at a time.
If it doesn't create duplicate, that is perfect. The only match types we use in Leinster are "1 innings" and "T20", And matches can change in type if they are rained off and refixed as a T20 match, so looking back there is no way of working out which match has which type. It's not a big one - everything could be "1 innings", but I use it as en extra filter - so for example I could search for all T20 matches played
