How to import multiple users at once?

Use the import users function in accounts settings tab

User import

Within Lytho, in addition to their user role with rights, all users will have to get the right permissions (which images, templates, and brand guides they may use in Lytho). For greenfield implementations, it can be helpful to use Lytho's user import to import the start set of users.

You can export all current users and the respective information from your Identity Management database currently in use. The exported user information needs to be compiled to the Lytho excel import format.  So that after activating their Lytho account, users will have the right role and permissions to see and be able to use the respective content in Lytho.

Points of attention when using Lytho user imports:
1- All users to be imported need to have their own system language for Lytho.
2- All users to be imported will need to have (several) specific language culture permission(s) for client-specific content in Lytho (for example, a user in Czechia must be able to use both the templates in Czech and Slovak). 
3-Users to be imported will be provided with specific categories that they are allowed to see, e.g. certain products only for certain users and target groups.
4- Multiple users of 1 dealer can be enabled to copy and use each other's made publications and also store and use the dealer's own assets in Lytho which should not be visible to other dealers. Here a default applied permission will need to be provided.

Column A 'Email'. Here enter the email address for this specific user.

Column B 'firstName'. Here enter the first name for this specific user.

Column C 'lastName'. Here enter the last name for this specific user.

Column D 'Language'. Here enter the default system language for Lytho for this specific user.

Column E 'Role'. Here enter the name of the Lytho role for this specific user. Please make sure that you first have configured and named all required Lytho roles in the Lytho user settings menu. A role will provide user-specific Lytho system features he can use.

Column F 'Groupname'. Here enter the name of the Lytho group for this specific user. Please make sure that you first have configured and named all required Lytho groups in the Lytho user settings menu. 

Column G 'Permissions'. Here, all permission tags must be listed for this specific user. In this way, the user only gets access to the respective Lytho content (assets, templates, and Brand guides). 

Column H 'Auto-applied Permission' here you enter the unique permissions that will make it possible for specific users to see and work on specific content in Lytho. This can be helpful when your organization works with specific content for resellers and dealers and want their resellers and dealers to upload their own specific content in Lytho and let them create their own content which will only be visible for these specific dealer users and admins.



Make sure you fill in the user excel file correctly with all users. Note the email addresses of the users must be unique and match the email addresses in the IDP SAMLv2 environment.
