Importing users

You can import users from the command line by creating a comma-delimited file (CSV) that contains the users to be imported. For a description of the CSV format, see User CSV file format.

You can also import the user CSV file with extra parameters that can be passed in to the importer. For a description of these parameters, see User import parameters.

Basic syntax

To import a user CSV file
  1. On the Cloud Cruiser machine, open a command prompt and change to the < install_dir >/bin directory.
  2. Run the following command ccimport -t user -f < fileName >.csv.
    You can get help on the ccimport utility with the command ccimport -h.

User import parameters

You can also set properties for all users in an import file with the -D argument. For example:

ccimport -t user -f cloud_users.csv -D defaultUserGroup=admin

You can specify the following parameters:




Group to assign to users who do not have one specified in the import file. If the user group does not exist, it will be created.
