We need to create a lot of users in Webviewer -- just checking is there any facility to mass create users -- as opposed to doing them one by one?
Very IMPORTANT: Back up the database before doing this
Create a model user
From the Administration / User panel, Export the Users. This will produce an XML file (adminUser.xml by default). This will give you the proper heading for the file and you can see varying definitions.
Make a copy of this file just in case.
Edit adminUser.xml and strip out all existing user (<user>...</user>) records for all users EXCEPT the model user.
Edit the resulting file, duplicating the user record (<user>...</user>) for each of the real users to add
Add the unique user’s information to each individual record. Only the userID and ownerRoleName are required. Everything else is optional.
From the Administration / User panel, Set
conflict option - Skip
in the drop down box, or else already defined users may be overwritten
Browse to and Import the updated User XML file.
Review the list to ensure the users were added.
The sample file might initially look something like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<description>Description of sample user</description>
