Hi. My name is ricardo and i'm new to outsystems. I am developing a website for my entire school. And I have to create a user for each student. And I was wondering if there is another way to insert users on my application without having to enter 1 per. It's possible? And if it is possible how do I do it?

Regards,

Ricardo Vieira

Hi Ricardo,

As far as I know, there's no out-of-the-box way to do that. Of course, you can always create something yourself (using an Excel upload).

Hi Ricardo,

You'd have to create an application to bulk insert records into the User Entity, possibly with an Excel upload.

If you want to know how to create a User code-wise, the best place to start would be to see how the Users application does it. You can't directly access it through Service Studio, but try looking for it in ServiceCenter:

Download it and open it in your Service Studio to see an example of how to interact with the User Entity.

For the Excel upload, it's been covered in a few threads, but you should look into the Excel to Record List action.
