Do you know if there is a way to automate importing and assigning licenses to users into JTS?

Regards

Hi Jorge,
There is a repotools -importUsers command which allows you to set user roles and licenses. You can find more in the documentation: https://jazz.net/help-dev/clm/index.jsp?re=1&topic=/com.ibm.jazz.install.doc/topics/r_repotools_importusers.html&scope=null
Let us know if this is what you were looking for

Hi

I know about this option and I find it useful, however our situation is the following:

We need to add 1 user, yeah, only 1, but it needs to be added on more than 400 project areas spread around on several servers, so I wanted to see If there was a way I could automate the import by only providing the JTS url and the license, similar to the option you mentioned to me on the other question to add users to project area.

Also this user needs to be imported from ldap

Do you think there is a way to do this?

Regards

Hi Jorge,
If the user needs to be added to 400 projects, it is possible that you are doing something wrong. What is the reason that this user needs to be added to so many project areas?

Hi

The request came from a client and apparently they will use the user as a functional/global id, it will be added as a project admin on several project areas so they can run some reports.

  You have to do the import from LDAP first. Once the user is member of the project area, you could use the Plain Java Client Libraries to add the user to all project areas. 

I don't have code for everything, but most parts.

hi Ralph

Thanks so much for this, I don't have too much experience on java but I will take a look at this option.
