An Administrator can create multiple new users or groups by creating a CSV file and importing the file into Connect. More information about this can be found in the Additional Information section of this TechNote.

You can also create multiple new users with their custom user profile fields by creating a CSV file and importing the file into Connect. This TechNote explains how to create CSV file with custom user profile fields.

Identifying Custom User Profile Field IDs

In order to identify the appropriate custom user profile field ID for the custom field(s) in your Breeze account, follow the steps below:

  1. Click the Administration tab at the top of the Breeze Manager window.
  2. Click Users and Groups.
  3. Click Customize User Profile.
  4. Click on a custom field link.
  5. In the URL, the custom field ID shows up after the filter-field-id parameter. It's format looks like "x-########".

In the screenshot below, the custom user profile field ID "x-405061302" represents the custom field "Address1".

Creating the CSV file

You must create a CSV file for the individual users that you want to add to Connect. Due to browser limitations and because the import process can take some time to complete, Adobe recommends that you create separate CSV files of 10,000 or fewer users per import.

The following example is a CSV file with a custom user profile field. In this example, the custom user profile field is an address. It also contains the minimum user information needed to perform the import.

first-name last-name login email password x-405061302
Mary Betts mbetts1@xyz.com mbetts1@xyz.com private1 100 A Street
Robert Blatt rblatt2@xyz.com rblatt2@xyz.com private1 5102 Maple Road Apt. 55
Ron Bloom rbloom3@xyz.com rbloom3@xyz.com private1 482 Sutter Street
Charles Bond cbond4@xyz.com cbond4@xyz.com private1 2824 River Road
Jennifer Cau jcau5@xyz.com jcau5@xyz.com private1 6114 King Blvd.

After entering all the information that you would like to import into Connect, save the Excel file as a CSV file. Make sure to choose "CSV (Comma Delimited) (*.csv)" as Save As type in Excel.

Importing the CSV file

  1. Click the Administration tab at the top of the Breeze Manager window.
  2. Click Users and Groups.
  3. Click Import.
  4. Under the Select Import Type section, select the Create new users option.
  5. Under the Select File to Import section, browse to the CSV file you want to import.
  6. Click the Upload button.
  7. After the upload is completed, a page appears that allows you to download a revised CSV file with the results of the import operation. This file indicates which users were successfully created and which users, if any, were not, due to an error in your CSV file.
