SafeConsole can populate its users multiple ways. 

  • When a user registers a device, SafeConsole will query the Active Directory server to figure out what Path to put the user in. If no Active Directory server can be found then a path will be created based on the local computer and username.
  • With SafeConsole On-Prem an optional direct sync can be done with the configurator. Link to Setup Guide
  • Using Powershell to export users from Active Directory and manually import to SafeConsole. Link to KB 
  • Manually creating users from inside SafeConsole. (Requires SafeConsole v5.2.0+)


SafeConsole 5.2


SafeConsole 5.2 revamped the way Admins can add and modify users and groups. To review how to manually add Users and New Path see the following support article: Adding and Modifying Users and Paths. If you want to dump multiple users into a path simply export your users into a csv file in the following format that includes Username and EmailAddress.


Username EmailAddress
Full Name
Fname@domain.local
Jeff Simon
JSimon@domain.local
Chris Williams
Cwilliams@domain.local
Joe Smith
Jsmith@domain.local


Download a the above template here



Once you have your csv file created, click on the wrench next to the path of where you want to import the users to. 



Upload and specify the format of your CSV file. The users will be placed into that Path and will be ready to register new devices. 


You can also import users into different paths by clicking "Import CSV" from the User's table. This is best used by exporting your local AD structure using powershell. For more information see the following article: Export Users from Active Directory





SafeConsole 5.1


For SafeConsole 5.1 only importing directly from Active Directory is Recommended. Link to KB 


Download the attached CSV to use as a template. Four entries are provided for a reference. 


DistinguishedName
EmailAddress
CN=Full Name,OU=Group,DC=domain,DC=local
Fname@domain.local
CN=Jeff Simon,OU=Sales,DC=domain,DC=local
JSimon@domain.local
CN=Chris Williams,OU=Marketing,DC=domain,DC=local
Cwilliams@domain.local
CN=Joe Smith,OU=Marketing,DC=domain,DC=local
Jsmith@domain.local


The DistinguishedName column is broken down by the following: 

CN = Full Name of User

OU = Group you want the user to be apart of. 

DC,DC = Domain name. The last DC is the TLD, with the previous DC being the subdomain and so on. For example if your company's domain was acme.com you would use DC=acme,DC=com. The DC field is required! 


Import your modified CSV file in the Users tab of SafeConsole

A hard refresh might be required before the Users show up in the policies tab. This example would create 4 users placing them in 3 separate Groups
