You can import users from:

Importing from the File

When importing from a file you must specify the following fields:

<translation version="1">
<translate from="FIRSTNAME" to="FirstName"/>
<translate from="LASTNAME" to="LastName"/>
<translate from="USERNAME" to="UserName"/>
<translate from="PASSWORD" to="Password"/>
<translate from="TITLE" to="Title"/>
<translate from="EMAIL" to="Email"/>
<translate from="WEBPAGE" to="WebPage"/>
<translate from="TELEPHONENUMBER" to="TelephoneNumber"/>

Importing from Active Directory

When importing form Active Directory you must specify the following fields:

        (&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=User)(givenname=*)(sn=*)(mail=*)(sAM Accountname=*))
<translation version="1">
<translate method="AddDomainPrefix" from="sAMAccountname"
<translate from="sn" to="LastName"/>
<translate from="givenname" to="FirstName"/>
<translate from="mail" to="Email"/>

If the “AddDomainPrefix” attribute is present, then the DOMAIN_NAME\ prefix will be added in front of the column strings, in this case: UserName. So every UserName will be imported in this form: DOMAIN_NAME\UserName. The

DOMAIN_NAME needs not to be defined but is detected automatically.
