Custom Attribute Value is empty in RQM Test Artifact Table view when importing from RQMExcelImporter Utility

Using an ExcelSheet, I export the custom attribute value among other data to RQM using RQMExcelImporter Utility. Although the import is successful, the value of the custom attribute is not displayed in the Browse > Test Case list view under the custom attribute column.

What could be the reason ?

When exporting test artifacts from excel sheet to RQM using ExcelImporter, ensure you follow the syntax for custom attributes provided in the RQMExcelImporter Wiki
testcase.customAttributes identifier=<Cell Reference>.name=<Cell Reference>.type="<Type as per Wiki>".value=<Column Reference>

There may be a couple of reasons that could lead to this issue:

a. If the Custom Attributes are already declared in RQM Project Area > Manage Project Properties > Custom Attributes > Test Case Attributes, you must get the identifier using Rest API for a sample Artifact with custom attribute data and use the same in you excel sheet identifier cell

b. If the Custom Attribute is not declared in RQM project area Test Case Attribute section, you can define your own identifier in the sheet. However, you must use the same identifier in other excel sheets while exporting the test artifacts to the same project area to ensure a duplicate custom attribute with the same name is not created.
