Importing User object


 I want to upload existing user data with passwords into salesforce user object. I'm able to import user data but i neither find a way to upload a password directly nor the "Generate New Password" field in the User Object. How can i import or generate password through DataLoader?


HI Medhavi,


Salesforce does not allow you to import passowrds for user. You need to generate the new password manually after importing the user.




Thank You for the reply. Is it possible to set the "Generate New Password" field while importing through Data Loader?


No, but it's easy to create a view within Users, select the users that need a new password, then hit the "Reset Password" button.


Ok. But what if i want to upload more than 200 users in the system?Is there any other way to do this ?
