CA Release Automation offers the ability to import users from a file. This article provides an example of the file used to import users via load from file option


The file used throughout this example has been attached. 

This article goes through an example of the file used to import more then two users. 



Example Import File: userdet.bat.txt


CA Release Automation 5.5.x , 6.x

In order to load the file you must login to the Automation Studio Java Applet. Once this is open go to the Administration -> User Management section

From there you will see a User Management option in the drop down menu to "Load from File".



This is a tab-delimited file. So each entry, whether it has a value or not, must be followed by a tab. CA Release Automation expects the following information in the order specified (click the Load from File option to get more details on each of these expected fields):

1. User Name

2. Last Name

3. First Name

4. Email

5. Password

6. Authentication Method

7. LDAP Host

8. LDAP Port


10. LDAP Search Context
