    Bulk Import of Users Link to this post

    Is there a tool to Bulk load users into the Users and User_Groups tables?

    Ideally I'd like to upload a csv file containing FirstName, Surname, Email, Password and have the users added if they are not in the user database already, and add them to whatever group I specify.

    Nice to have would be making Password optional and auto-generating passwords.

    Anyone build anything like this? Or have thoughts on how to go about building it as an add-on?

    There's a csv import for the newsletter mailing list. Maybe you can simply alter that code and use it for your user import. I guess there shouldn't be too much to change, since the newsletter subscribers are basically users as well

    Hi, you will find in the attached files my own implentation of bulk users import, directly duplicated from the code in newsletter ( screenshot here )

    place the following in cms/code
    SecurityAdmin.php (replace)
    SecurityImportField.php (new)

    and place the following in cms/templates (both new)

    tested on 2.2.3

    don't know yet if it can import password too, to be tested, let me know how it goes for you

    [edit] : do attached files work on this forum ? if not download here.
