How to create/add bulk users in WorkSpace?

Hi Folks, 

I am curious to know the process/steps to created user or add users in ALM Octane WorkSpace. 

Is there a similar process that we do in ALM.net? 

Created users in SA > Add to project>Assign Role

Example For Octane: 

I have 20 users that I need to create their account in Octane, add them into A workspace and Assign Tester and Leader role. Those 20 users detail is in excel.

So, Can I use excel sheet to create/add users in ALM Octane WorkSpace? Similar to ALM.net.

Note: My authentication Method is Internal.

Please suggest.

  • Hi,

    As far as I know we do not yet have a functionality to do bulk imports of users from Excel into Octane.

    If you do this quite often or need to import a large number of users you might use the code from the GDPR Content Pack: Please see module modOCT / subOCTDemoImportUser - hope you understand my code If not please contact me in here in the forum or directly via email.

    Regards,

  • Thanks much for your suggestion and offer on helping me and hopefully other folks like me. 

    I looked at the code/module in GDPR CP, I did understood. But, not sure where to start using this module for importing users into Octane. 

    So, if Im not wrong, I would have to fill in "Users" tab/sheet with my users' info. But, do I have to use GDPR Content Pack tab/sheet to import users?

    So, few follow up questions.

    1) If I need to use GDPR Content Pack tab/sheet, which check should I select (Delete content, import Demo Data and Update content). Im guessing I do not have to select any if Im just importing users into Octane. 

    2) In "User" tab /sheet, should have any value for ID?

    3) My users' "name/login name" is numeric only. Is numeric value acceptable in "Name" column. 

    4) Will Import user macro creates new users into Octane and add users into Workspace and role I want?

    Above of all, Im tried importing a user into "Default Shared Space > Default WorkSpace" without selecting (Delete content, import Demo Data and Update content). The import started with importing Requirements, which  do not want.
