User Experience

  1. Log on the SecureAuth IdP realm.

  2. Click Choose File and browse to find the .CSV file to be imported.

    For example, the filename in this example is csvImport.csv.

  3. View results in the table that appears beneath the .CSV filename.


    The first row of the .CSV file contains the column headers included in the profile string.

    The color of the field name in this header indicates if the attribute is valid.

    Blue or Green: valid

    Red: invalid



    If one or more columns is flagged with red text, verify the nomenclature to ensure the Profile Field is spelled correctly, with the same case-formatting applied

    NOTE: If you need to make edits to the .CSV file, update the file and then repeat steps 2 and 3.

  4. When you are ready to upload the .CSV file, click Import.

    The status above the filename shows the number of new users successfully added, and the number successfully updated
