Importing numeric idnos to entity references

Description

Column 10 in the attached sample dataset contains numeric identifiers to existing entity records. The mapping is to ca_objects.condition.condName, which is actually an Entity reference.

If you're in the UI, the entity reference lookup retrieves the proper entity based on identifiers 4516 and 3187.

However, when running the importer, these throw the "could not match entity id 4516" error.

Sample mapping/data attached. The system is /data/kenderdine

I've gotten around this previously using a splitter with `{"matchOn":["idno"]}`.

Within the data importer it should assume idnos... I found an error that was preventing this behavior though. Just pushed a fix for this.
