User Migration fields available for bulk data import

Modified on Wed, 30 Mar, 2022 at 7:49 PM



Some projects may have information about Users that are not captured by the main inventory source used by ManagementStudio. E.g. Users who are in a domain that is not been examined by the connector. In this case, project administrators can use an Excel source to manually import the information into ManagementStudio. This article describes the fields that can be used.

For further information on data imports, please refer to this article.

Available User Migration Fields

Field NamesDescriptionRequired?
Migration IdThe Migration Id is a unique reference created by ManagementStudio when a user is imported into the ManagementStudio database. The use of this field will vary depending on the reason for the import:
  • Creating a New User Migration: This field should be left blank when importing new users. ManagementStudio will allocate a Migration Id as part of the import process
  • Updating an Existing User Migration: The Migration Id is required to ensure the details in the bulk data import are mapped to the correct user. Migration Ids can be exported from ManagementStudio and manually integrated with the bulk data import file using Excel:
  • Switch to the User Migration (1) module in ManagementStudio
  • Click the Select All button (2) from the toolbar to select all devices
  • Click the Copy (3) dropdown arrow and select Export to Excel All (4)
