Mass Enabling Portal Accounts

You can import or enable your student portal accounts using our Core Data Import Tools. No matter what type username you are using for your student portal accounts you can import and enable your student portal accounts just by uploading a file. This file can also be added to your daily automated imports. Create a tab delimited file named ‘student_portal_accounts.txt’ with 5 columns.

\L 1. Student ID\L

2. Username (Leave blank if not used)

\L 3. E-Mail (Leave blank if not used)\L

4. Enable (1 for Yes, 0 for No)

\L 5. Temp Password (Leave blank when using LDAP / Google SSO)

To import, go to the ‘Core Data Import / Validation’ tool within the Administration Menu. You must add the student_portal_accounts.txt file to a .zip file before uploading via the interface. If you wish to automate importing this file, contact our data team.
