If you load Users through an "Import Task", password is no longer a required field. You will have to insert a user name because that is how Users are identified when being added to a Publish Task (for distributing reports).
Take a look at the help file:
Use the attached XLSX file as a template for your import.
We have a requirement that we successfully implemented using NPrinting 16. The requirement is:
Every report distribution includes the following steps
1. Delete old recipients
2. Generate new recipient list including recipient group info from latest Qlikview app in excel format
2. Add new recipients with their filters and assign them a group.
3. Send reports as email to recipient groups
I am wondering if all above are possible in current release of NPrinting 17? I know that we can import recipient through Import Task but the recipient are added as Users and not related to any app.
Thanks & Regards,
Groups can be imported as part of the Excel file. You are correct, users are not assigned to an app so that they can be used globally across all apps.
If as part of the publish task, you distribute to a group rather than individual users, the import task will do the job of assigning users to that group so you don't have to manually add/delete recipients.
Thanks Stephen for your reply.
So if new imported sheet modify Group for a user and make it blank. Will the user group also get modified to blank in next import on server?
If yes than won't this be a problem - because users are centrally managed and being shared by many different task, apps and can be part of many different Groups?
I got below from NPrinting 17 help:
When importing users with groups or roles:
- if groups or roles added in the row for a user do not exist, they will be automatically created.
- existing associations with groups and roles will not be removed if not present in the update row. An import can only add associations with roles and groups for a user, but not remove them.
Based on the help documentation, it doesn't look like the group will become blank, but I'd have to test this.
Is it possible for you to not include the users with blank groups in the import file? In that case, you can select the "Remove recipients if not present in import file" option in the import task, and then re-import them when they have a new group assignment.
Thanks Stephen for your reply. The question is still same - if users are
centrally managed and shared across different apps, I cannot remove a user
in next import. I only want to change/remove their Group association based
on my import list. If a user is assigned to multiple groups shared across
multiple apps, I want to remove only my Group which I had assigned in last
