You can import new user information all at once from a file. The fields in the file must be comma-separated (.csv format), which you can create from almost any spreadsheet program like Excel. It's very easy to do and can save you a lot of time.

Import File Format

In a .csv file, each record (in this case, each new user) is on a separate line. The fields for each record are separated by commas. There is no comma after the last record on each line.

Information in your .csv file includes:

  • Login: The user's login name (Note: Do not use an email address. @ and spaces are not allowed.)
  • Email Address: The user's email address
  • Initial password
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Expire Password (false): "true" (without the quotes) forces the user to change their password when they first log in.
  • Confirm (false): "true" (without the quotes) sends a confirmation email to the user with their login credentials
  • Aliases: Any email aliases, separated by commas

(bold = required; default values are in parentheses)

Example: Bulk User Import CSV File

jdoe, jdoe@example.com, janes_secret_password, , , , , jane@example.com

bob.critchens, critch@example.com, bobs_password, , , true

otis.green, otis@example.com, secretPass, Otis, Green, true, true, otis.green@example.com, otis.g@example.com

You can also supply a master password along with the file name. If specified, that will be the initial password for all imported accounts. If you don't specify a password for a user nor a master password, the system will generate a random one.
