Adding Devices Using the CSV Importer

 

A brief video on how to import multiple devices using the SevOne CSV Importer

Transcription:

In this video, we are going to cover how to add devices using the CSV import tool. Navigate to the device manager at the top, and select device manager. That will bring you to the page that you now see. Once you're here, select the menu icon at the top left, and select CSV importer. There are two options depending on the version of SNP you are using. To ensure that you enter the information in the correct format required for the import tool; best way is to copy this entire line and use it as the header of a CSV file. For example, I could copy that information and then create a text file. Give it a name, such as import template dot CSV.

I've already done that so I will forego that step. Once you actually have the template made, navigate to the CSV editor of your choice; in this case I'm using Excel. Input as many as you like here, I've entered two just for demonstration purposes. You can see that the only piece of information that is strictly necessary is the IP address, because we will automatically resolve the name if it is possible in the system. However, the name field cannot be left blank. Be sure to at least add the IP of the device or devices you are looking to add. Everything else here is optional.

So we will save this, and we're going to want to open it in a plain text editor. I'm going to right click, and I'm going to select everything below line one, copy that, and then bring it back to our import tool, and hit paste. Now this should throw up errors because these devices are already in the system. You see I have two errors. If I were to change this IP address to something new and hit import, you can see that only the local host is throwing up the errors. The CSV import tool will continue on and try every single device you have listed, and throw up errors when there is conflicts, but it won't stop the process. It is resilient in that respect. You should actually see going back to the device manager, those devices entered into the system.
