Import IP address spreadsheet view

You can import IP Addresses & Subnets from an external source, such as an Excel spreadsheet. The import of existing IP Addresses and their details can be performed by uploading a spreadsheet in Excel, CSV, and Tab-delimited text files. Column Headers are not required; however, if present, they must be on the first row. You can import IP Addresses before creating subnets. Any existing IP Addresses will be updated.

IPAM includes an import wizard that guides you through the process of importing IP Addresses and Subnets.
