User Bulk Import

Hi Support,


Does Yellowfin have a feature for scheduled user import? Our client has thousand of users, and we are looking at options to move away from the manual user upload in the Administration page.

Or maybe, would it be advisable to push the users directly in configdb?


Thanks,

Jasper

Hi Jasper,

I hope all is well,

We have the option to use use Bulk User Import as you mentioned, more information on this can be found here, although this does require the manual upload of this... However with regards to having this scheduled, we have this feature that uses Web Services which may be of an interest to you?

Let me know your thoughts.

Mark

Hi Mark,

Sorry, another question from out dev lead.Would there be a problem if we use the ADDUSERS web service to upload 50,000 users? Is there some sort of limit?


Thanks,

Hi Jasper,

I hope all is well,

I would expect using the UI Manual process would cause some limitations when uploading through that, however using Web Services; ADDUSERS should be able to handle 50,000+

Let me know your thoughts, happy to look into this further i.e. test etc.
