Hi,

I tried to import users via a CSV file but with no success. My file looks like this:

UserName,Password,PasswordAlgorithm,FirstName,LastName,HomeDirectory
example1,e206a54e97690cce50cc872dd70ee896,MD5,Example,User1,/opt/goanywhere/userdata/webdocs/example1

This is on a Linux system. The following error is displayed:

Column heading 'HomeDirectoryexample1' is not supported. Please refer to the help documentation for a list of supported columns.

Obviously, the new line is not detected correctly.

How do I have to specify the entries in the file?

BTW: Why is using an XML file not recommended? Trying that succeeded in adding the user.

Thank you,

Peter

Peter,

Review your CSV file and make sure it has the CRLF or LF (Depending on system) so that when it reads the CSV it has an End of Record Marker.

Also, we utilize both options .. so, you can add users to the system multiple ways.
