import list of users to QMC (in DMS mode)


In the DMS mode, is there any way to import a list of users or set a path to a database table instead of creating the users one by one in the custom directory?

If your intent is to define custom users, you can use one of two options to mass-import already defined users:

  • Store them in a DBMS table and configure a Custom ODBC connection to the database table.
  • Manually create a single custom user, locate the XML file that stores the details of this user and add the others using the same XML-layout. Usually, this file is called CustomDirectoryData.xml and can be found in C\ProgramData\QlikTech\DirectoryServiceConnector\. But if I'm not mistaken, it isn't present by default.

IMHO in QMC there is no button available to mass-import users from say an Excel file.

Whether change of this file without service restarting is possible?

Restarting is required?

For a cluster the file contains on each QVS server. How to change files on different nodes? Possibly, the stop of all nodes is required?
