How To Bulk Upload Users in gPanel

You can now bulk upload users in gPanel. This will allow you to add multiple users from a Google Sheet. A few things to note before beginning:

  • This process can only be run once. If the process fails, you will need to start over.
  • The same sheet cannot be used more than once. For every Bulk Upload User operation you wish to complete, you will need to create a new spreadsheet and a new Bulk Operation.

1. To get started, go to Tools and click Bulk Operations.

Tools > Bulk Operations in gPanel Navigation

The sheet must contain these column headers: First Name, Last Name, Email Address, Password, and Org Unit Path. Below is an example of how the sheet should be set up.

11. The popup also includes a link to the Google Sheet that you uploaded. If you click on the “here” link, the sheet will open and you will be able to see that status of the operation. If you see any errors, you can open the Errored Rows tab at the bottom of the sheet to find what the error(s) are.
