Data imports


  • Hello,

    I want to import non IP based devices into the Service Manager 2012 CMDB. The file is in a CSV file format but I'm struggling with the XML part.

    Is there an easier way?

  • Hi !

    There is a third party solution which might help. Link

    Unfortunately the 2012 Version isnt out yet, but i have good experiences with

    the Data Management Pack in SCSM 2010.

    Maybe you get a beta by asking them.

  • Shaun: Do the App handle other objects besides users and computers?
    (Doesn't seems like it when looking at your demo)

  • Hey Anders, right now we import Users and Computers, but are working on a v2 that will extend across the enitre Class model in SCSM.

    Let me know if you have any questions, thanks!

  • Hi Guys,

    I spoke to Shaun at Cireson. 

    I had lots of PC's from a legacy system that needed importing. The Cireson App worked very well.

    Thanks everyone for their input.
