I am importing an entity reference by label. If entity reference doesn't find a match, it throws an error:

Warning: array_keys() expects parameter 1 to be array, boolean given in entityreference_feeds_set_target() (line 131 of /sites/all/modules/contrib/entityreference/entityreference.feeds.inc).
Warning: reset() expects parameter 1 to be array, null given in entityreference_feeds_set_target() (line 133 of /sites/all/modules/contrib/entityreference/entityreference.feeds.inc).

In the feeds.inc we have:

        case 'label':
          $options = $handler->getReferencableEntities($value, '=');
          $options = reset($options);
          $etids = array_keys($options);
          // Use the first matching entity.
          $entity_id = reset($etids);

If $options doesn't return a result, the array_keys() line causes an error.

This patch is almost certainly not correct, but it fixes it until a better dev comes up with a solution.

Same issue here. This will also occur if the reference exists, but is unpublished (or the importer does not have permission).

Title: Error during feed import if entity doesn't exist » array_keys() and reset() notices in entityreference_feeds_set_target() during feed import if entity doesn't exist
Priority: Normal » Critical

Patch logic is good, but coding standards are wrong.

How can this still not be fixed? It's so simple. Maintainer, do your thing.

Same patch, with correct coding style. For my make file.

Correct code style now and tests are a success!

This patch (#8) also worked for me, no more warnings. Agree that it's RTBC.
