When you are experiencing a problem with an import mapping also include;

A sample of the source data.

To troubleshoot local machine permissions please indicate if you have tried "Run As Administrator"

To troubleshoot SharePoint permissions please indicate that the user running import has permissions to do via the UI what do are asking DIFS to do - I.e. add documents, add meta data terms etc

Finally don't forget to mention anything special about your environment. Like using ADFS, custom event receivers on the destination etc etc

Logging into Codeplex

Some users have experienced problems doing this with their Microsoft Live Account.

To work around this problem you may run internet explorer instead of Microsoft Edge and choose Codeplex account when signing in rather than using a linked Microsoft Live account.

Alternatively you can use the GitHub project for DIFS and raise an issue there.
