Importing Users from a CSV file

If you have the list of users in a text file, you can import the same to PMP database. All the lines in the CSV file should be consistent and have the same number of fields. The entries should be in comma separated form. Apart from standard details such as First Name, Last Name, User Name, Email Address, Department, Location etc. you can also enable or disable two-factor authentication for specific users. If you want to do that, you need to put the text enabled for enabling two-factor authentication and disabled for disabling it. CSV files having extensions .txt and .csv are allowed.

To import users from a CSV file,

  • Go to "Admin" >> "Users" >> "Import from CSV"
  • Browse and select the file and click "Next"
  • The user inventory of PMP contains six fields by default - First Name, Last Name, User Name, Email Address, Department and Location. Of these six, the first four fields are mandatory. In your CSV file, the entries could be present in any order. You can choose which field in the CSV file maps to the corresponding attribute of the PMP user account
  • Click "Finish"
  • The result of every line imported will be logged as an audit record. For troubleshooting errors during import, refer to the log file in the location <PMP_Home>\logs\user_import_errors.txt
