Student Portal - Import Usernames/Passwords

You can import or enable your student portal accounts using our Core Data Import Tools if you do not want to do it manually.  This document will show you how to do that.  Please contact your Implementation Manager if you have questions on this process.

Prepare the File

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.

1. Student ID

2. Username (Leave blank if not used)

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

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

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

To import, goto 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.

How to Import

How to Import: To import, goto 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. The filename of the txt must match exactly ‘student_portal_accounts.txt’.

Automate: If you are automating your initial set-up, please request to contact the data team.  Otherwise, send in a help ticket requesting assistance with your automation profile if you need additional assistance.

Re-Import: Re-importing this file will update any email addresses or usernames.  However, temporary passwords will not be updated from re-importing the file.  You can force these to update by importing a file to disable the accounts by setting the enable column to ‘0’, then performing another import with ‘enable’ set to ‘1’.
