Importing Computer Clients from a File

You can import a "tab-delimited" text file (not a CSV file).

See Placeholders for more workflow information. Can be useful for

The import location is in the Create New Client pane:

The new format looks like this:

Client Name <tab> Comment <tab> Serial or MAC
  • Name is mandatory
  • Comment is optional
  • Serial or MAC is optional if you are going to be adding clients that are already named later; otherwise, you must provide either a serial number or MAC address.

MAC address formats can have colons (:) between octets. For serial numbers, only capital letters (A-Z) and ordinal numbers (0-9) are allowed. Create the text file using a text editor that can save the file in plain text format with Unix or Windows line endings.
