Configuring the CSV Importer
Once you have started the CSV Importer, the 'Configuration' screen allows you to specify information about the Crowd directory and CSV file(s) involved in the import.
Refer to information on preparing your CSV files.
To configure the CSV importer
The CSV files to import (the one that are entered in the 'User File' and 'Group Membership File' fields must be in a path readable by the Crowd server performing the import.
- Start the CSV Importer.
- Complete the following fields:
- Directory — Select the Crowd user directory into which you want to import the users.
- Are your passwords encrypted? —
- Select Yes if the passwords in your CSV file are already encrypted. Crowd will not re-encrypt the passwords during the import.
- Select No if the passwords in your CSV file are not encrypted. Crowd will encrypt the passwords during the import, using the encryption method of the Crowd directory you are importing into.
- User state after import — Select the default state for users imported with the CSV file.
- Delimiter — Type the single-character delimiter used to separate the fields in your CSV file(s).
- User File — Type the location of the CSV file containing the users you wish to import. If you're using Crowd 4.2.4, 4.3.5 or newer, the file path must be relative to the 'import' subdirectory of the shared Crowd home.
- Group Membership File — If you want to import groups and group memberships of your users, type the location of the CSV file containing the group membership information. If you're using Crowd 4.2.4, 4.3.5 or newer, the file path must be relative to the 'import' subdirectory of the shared Crowd home. If the 'import' subdirectory doesn't exist in the shared Crowd home, create one first.
- Click the Continue button to map the CSV fields to the Crowd directory fields.
