Updating user passwords from csv file
For a rare but routine mass change of user passwords for portal administrators there is a function in the password policy menu - "Update user passwords from csv file".
You need to enable the "Update user passwords from file" permission for the certain role"
You can update user passwords from a file on the Password rules page:
To do this, you need to create a CSV file and enter the user IDs and password in the LMS Collaborator, as shown in the example below:
As a result, the .csv file should contain two columns:
- uid - external user ID
- password - password that needs to be set.
The CSV file must be UTF-8 encoded. For example:
uid;password test007;1234567890 test002;123rty456
After downloading the file, all users on the list, according to the ID, have their passwords replaced with the new ones. Passwords can only be updated for active (not blocked) system users. If a user with such an id is not found, the system ignores them.
All changes are displayed in the form of an automatic message after the end of the file download.
A password change notification is sent automatically to the user using the template Users - Your account in the training system has been updated (more information in Notification templates setting). The information is also recorded in Security log.
