How to resolve “Your import failed: Import for object Lead did not succeed. Error received - [AsyncApiException exceptionCode='InvalidBatch' exceptionMessage='Field name not found : LeadSource' ]” Error

Knowledge Article Number 000231922
Description Inserting Lead records using Data Import Wizard causes the following error:

“Your import failed: Import for object Lead did not succeed. Error received - [AsyncApiException exceptionCode='InvalidBatch' exceptionMessage='Field name not found : LeadSource' ]”
 
Resolution The reason the error appeared is that the Lead Source field is hidden from the page layout (for Professional Editions) or it is set as hidden from the Field Level Security.

You can resolve the issue by doing one of the following:
  • When importing Leads, make sure that the "Assign New Leads to this Source" drop-down is set to "--None--".
User-added image

OR
  • Make the field visible for the user by adding the field on the Page Layout (for Professional Edition) or set the field visibility to "Visible".
