How To: Import Manager Access

 

Warning: We highly recommend and always suggest that you run an Import Job on your test platform first, before you upload the data on live.

Creating the Import Profile

First, you need to create an Import Profile to use for the upload. Click here for more information on how to do this.

The Destination for this import would be Permission record for a user, as this is used to import Roles against a User.

For this import, the following fields need to be used as Key Columns in the Import Profile:

  • RoleID - this will be the ID of the Manager Role, which is AP-MNG.

  • UserID - this is the User ID of the user you want to give Manager Access to.

One of these two fields will also be needed for the import, but it cannot be both:

  • CompanyID - this is the ID of the Account you want to give the user Manager Access over

  • CompGroupID - this is the ID of the Account Group you want to give the user Manager Access over

Please note, the CompanyID/CompGroupID and the UserID must match records already present within the platform.

Filling in the Import File

Then, you need to create your import file that you will use to upload the data. Below is a Sample File as a template, with the second row being a description of the field and the third being sample data that will need to be replaced.

All imports should be uploaded in a CSV format, as they lack formatting that would otherwise be included within the file.
