Regenerate staging to target mapping

Staging to target for entities have to be regenerated. To regenerate staging to target mapping, go to the Data import/export Parameters form, and then click Regenerate target mapping. This action deletes any manual modification done to staging to target mapping and regenerates staging to target mapping for all standard entities. For custom entities, mapping has to be manually regenerated from the target entities form.
