Create Input Files for Bulk Requests

You must create a CSV (comma-separated values) input file that lists all of the bulk requests that you want to input into the Self-Service Console using the User Groups and Token Bulk Requests utility.


  1. Do one of the following:

    • Create an ASCII text file. Separate the header information and request information with commas.

    • Use spreadsheet software, such as Microsoft Excel, and enter the values in each column of the spreadsheet.

    Note: You must create a separate CSV input file for token requests and a separate CSV input file for user group membership requests. You cannot put token requests and user group membership requests in the same CSV input file.

  2. Enter header information (attribute names) for requests, on the first line, separated by commas, or in different columns, if you use a spreadsheet.

  3. Enter request information (attribute values) in the second and following lines, separated by commas, or in different columns, if you use a spreadsheet.

    Each line, after the header, is a separate request.

    Note: The request information (attribute values) must follow the same order as the header information (attribute names) in each line of the input file.

    For information about attribute names and attribute values, see CSV Format for Token Requests Input File and CSV Format for User Group Membership Requests Input File.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • Save the text file with the .csv extension.

    • If you use spreadsheet software, save the input file as a .csv file.

  5. Copy the .csv file to the RSA Authentication Manager instance. For example, use Secure FTP to copy the .csv file into the /home/rsaadmin directory.

  6. Run the import-bulk-request utility.
