How do I manage AD users in NPrinting without Dashboard

Hi,

Is there a programmatic way I can add / delete many Users from NPrinting without having to go through the UI?

For example, any script that allows us to load a XML or from an Excel file and import it into NPrinting? Or even modify the NPrinting database structure of Users directly?

Currently, it's apparent that NPrinting has no security model that allows it to be integrated fully with Qlikview's security model.

If we need to change a user's email or role and re-apply it using Section Access in Qlikview, we have to manually re-configure all that inside NPrinting. A script would allow some level of integration between Qlikview security model and Nprinting.

There is an import user task you can setup to load your users in batch from an excel file.Re: How to do bulk user import?

You should also take a look at this video which explains how to use the NPrinting User Management APIs for AD integration (works for June 2017 release and newer):

Will this add-on also be part in a future release? It would be nice when it's installed with a user interface with the normal NPrinting setup.

Is it supported by Qlik? - If no - it is only temporary workaround and not production solution of enterprise product!!!
