Re: Creating bulk user using XML import format

Hello shivam.panchal,

for this, I would recommend you to first export a small subtree of your existing users-tree, for example with 2-3 users, and then check the XML created.

Re: Creating bulk user using XML import format

Thanks Eduardo for the answer, but the exported xml file doesnt seem to be symmetrical.

Hi shivam.panchal,

Re: Creating bulk user using XML import format

I tried to figure out the format, then created similar trees like ones containing information about one user, and then when i uploaded it, it shows import error, and also there are admin information in the xml in between as well. So, its not working as of now. Do, we have any import format of xml, which i can use to enter the entries of the users with their credentials. Also, the password, i generated for all of two users which i created initially was same, but in xml, its encrypted and different. 

Thanks
Shivam

Re: Creating bulk user using XML import format

Hi Shivam,

what import error are you getting?
what admin information do you mean?

No, the only import format of xml is the one used during export/import. I just tried it and I am able to import users previously exported.
Yes, the password is hashed, so you would have to use a "master password" or similar for the users created, where you know the hashed value of the password.

Again, a simple script for this purpose would be easier and more powerful, so you can exactly control the attributes of the users created. Refer to https://forum.reportserver.net/viewtopic.php?id=901, #2 for an example.

Best regards,
Eduardo

Re: Creating bulk user using XML import format

Hii, I am also able to import the same exported user, what i am trying to do is changing the username, and firstname and last name in the xml file, by copying the that exported item tree several time to reproduce the user, password keeping the same as encrypted  and when i import, it doesnt show the error, but not uploading.


Thanks

Re: Creating bulk user using XML import format

Have you set the "import target location" and then in the "objects" tab selected the users to import, then click on "complete import"?

You can then go to the user tree, click on "refresh", and you should see your imported users, even if you changed their username, first name and lastname.

Eduardo
