Insert Users via the Data Loader
|Knowledge Article Number||000007571|
Here's an overview of special requirements when inserting (creating) Users via the Data Loader.
1. Required fields when inserting users:
2. Pick Lists: The following UI picklist values are different than the values to use in the Data Loader. Instead, use the tabbed worksheets attached to this solution for the proper picklist values.
3. IsActive: If you don't specify the IsActive field when inserting a user, the user will automatically be inserted as Active. However, if you do not have a license ready then you can set IsActive to FALSE in your CSV file and activate the user when a license becomes available.
4. Generate new password and notify user immediately: This checkbox is not present in the Data Loader, so a password is not generated with Users created this way. Instead, use the "Reset Password" button and select the desired users from a User list view and reset the password for all selected users from the view itself.
