Adding large numbers of users or mobile devices
When an admin must add many users or mobile devices, SafeLinx Administrator recommends batch processing to simplify the process.
To process resources by using batch, you need access to the mkwg (or chwg)
commands and must be comfortable editing LDIF files. Create an LDIF
formatted file, then run:
mkwg -f ldif_file.
|samples/ldif/userall.ldif||Example of adding users with all fields specified|
|samples/ldif/userreq.ldif||Example of adding users with required fields specified|
|samples/ldif/mdevall.ldif||Example of adding mobile devices with all fields specified|
|samples/ldif/mdevreq||Example of adding mobile devices with required fields specified|
- A resource in the LDIF file starts with the distinguished name (dn).
- You bypass the SafeLinx Server when you modify these files, so it does no error checking when resources are processed.
- To reduce space in the DSS, use the *req.ldif files and add only the non-required fields you plan on using. The *all.ldif files are provided for completeness and show all the fields possible.
For more information, see the documentation for your DSS and the HCL SafeLinx Administrator's Guide.
