Sample: Assigning roles to people

This sample shows you how to assign roles to users and then load this data into the database.

About this sample

This sample assigns the Site Administrator role to a person.

If you prefer to work with data in XML format instead of in CSV format, you can configure the utility to use XML formatted files. Edit the wc-dataload.xml file and change the location elements to reference the xml files provided.


  1. Open the command-line interface and go to the following directory:
    • WC_installdir/bin
    • WebSphere Commerce DeveloperWCDE_installdir\bin
  2. Enter the following command to load the Admin and Person role data into the database:
    • AIXLinux./ ../samples/DataLoad/Member/Person/wc-dataload.xml –DLoadOrder="Admin,Person"
    • WebSphere Commerce DeveloperWindowsdataload ..\samples\DataLoad\Member\Person\wc-dataload.xml –DLoadOrder="Admin,Person"

Verifying results

To verify that the role information for the new users was loaded into the database, run the following SQL command:
select DN from users where registertype in ('S','A')

Cleaning up the data

To remove the data that is loaded in this sample from the database, run the CleanUp.sql file in the /samples/DataLoad/Member/Person directory.
