Import user-defined group elements

If you have group elements saved to a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file, you can import those elements into your user-defined group.

For each element a name and value are required. The asterisk (*) wildcard symbol can be used in values, if appropriate. In addition an optional description can be added for each element.

The CSV file must begin with the Name, Value, Description header. For example:

    Administrators,Administrators, Top level administrators only
    Backup Operators,backup oper*,
    DNS Admins,DNSAdmin*,
    Domain Admin,domain admin*,

Importing elements will not overwrite an existing element list in a user-defined group. Imported elements are added to the list, and duplicate elements are skipped.

  1. On the SEM Console, click the Configure tab.
  2. From the Configure drop-down list, select User-defined groups.
  3. On the toolbar, click Create User-defined group, or select an existing user-defined group and click Edit.

  4. Click Import elements, navigate to your CSV file, and then click Open.

    The CSV file must include populated Name and Value columns. The Description column is optional.
