DSImport: eDirectory CSV Import Tool

DSImport allows you to process information from CSV files to ...

  • import new objects

  • modify existing objects

  • delete existing objects

  • compare with existing objects


Tab "Info"

  • Show this short overview

  • Get Updates

    Use the link to my web site to check for updates and get the most recent version

Tab "Tree & Context"

  • Select the tree and container

    In the tree view, choose a tree and container as a base for your CSV operation

    This is especially important if your CSV does not contain the full DNs, but only CNs or short object names

  • The right panel shows default settings for your CSV - choose the settings that best fit your CSV contents

Tab "CSV -> eDirectory"

  • Click "Load CSV" to read your CSV and check the result in the CSV grid.

    Nothing will be sent to eDirectory at this stage.

    If the columns do not match the way you want your data structured, change the settings (see above) and reload the file

    Check the comments on "Using the correct CSV file structure" below.

  • Excluding specified colums/attributes from the operation

    If you would like to exclude selected columns from being imported into eDirectory, click on the CSV grid column header.

    Selected columns are green, unselected columns are displayed red.

  • Operating on individual objects

    You may right-click on an object in the CSV grid to perform an action (add, delete, modify) on an individual object CSV line

  • Editing CSV grid data

    Double-clicking into a grid cell allows you to edit the contents of a data cell.

    NB: the change will be temporary and will NOT change the imported files

Tab "Results"

  • Check the results screen for logging and error information.

    You may use right-click to clear or save the list

Using the correct CSV file structure

  • The first CSV line should typically contain the eDirectory names of the attributes

  • The first column should be the CN or the DN of the objects

  • Lines starting with '#' are treated as comments and will be ignored
