CSV Import – How to import users and their details to 2N® Access Commander from a CSV file

2N® Access Commander allows uploading of users from a CSV file, including their contact and access (code and card number) details, so you can prepare a list of users, their cards, codes, etc. to a file and then upload them to Access Commander at once.


Requirments

  • It is always recommended to use the current version of Access Commander to ensure full functionality and support of the latest firmware on the added devices


Technical Parameters

  • This function allows the import of users only to the company, where the import will proceeded
  • The function cannot delete users
  • Require a license Advanced, Pro, or Pro Unlimited
  • The following attributes can be imported in this way: User name, email, 3 telephone numbers, code, card number, groups, employee's ID.



STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE


  • In the Access Commander's web interface go to Companies > given Company > Import Data.


  • Download the "sample CSV file" by clicking on the appropriate button - see the red box on the image above - and you can see how to enter the parameters
    (comma separated, no spaces; in the case of an unused parameter, we simply do not write anything, so there will be more commas depending on how many parameters we omit - see the red box on the image of the sample CSV file below (in line 1 we see the order of available parameters )).
    The file can get corrupted if you save it the wrong way. It is necessary to save it in UTF-8 coding and with EOL conversion to UNIX!


for better orientation in CVS file you can use a Visual Code, which will allow better orientation



                                                 

Tip

In this way, instead of one, two card numbers can be uploaded to the user - in this case we do not write a comma between them, but a semicolon ";" .
