Import Users

  • Within the Users tab, you can take advantage of the convenient Import and Export functionality for users in CSV format.

  • This enables you to easily transfer multiple users in a single step, as opposed to the laborious task of manually adding them one by one.

  • This valuable Import Users feature saves you time and simplifies the management of users within your network.

  1. Click the Import button on the Users tab.

  2. You can view the Timus_Users_Sample document by clicking Download Sample text in the upper left corner of the pop-up window.

  3. To import users, you have two options. You can either drag and drop the CSV document onto the designated area on the screen, as shown in the image below, Or you can simply click on the area to browse for the document. Please note that the maximum file size allowed for import is 5MB.

Pay attention to the following points for the CSV document you will prepare:

  • First Name, Last Name, and E-mail fields must be filled.

  • Up to 70 characters can be entered in the First Name and Last Name fields.

  • Up to 120 characters can be entered in the E-mail field.

  • Remote Access Sites must be one of the sites in the system, or you can leave them empty.

  • Teams that are not in the system will be created as new teams.

  • Team fields can be empty.

  • You can upload up to 500 users at a time.

  • Users whose Remote Access Sites field is empty will not be able to establish a remote connection.

  • Multiple sites in the system can be entered in the Remote Access Sites fields by placing a comma (,) between them.

After successfully importing your users to Timus Manager, you have the option to export them as Timus Users directly from your network.

Inactive accounts are not able to login to the system, and do not consume user subscriptions.

Timus will scan the dark web for users with disclosed or breached email addresses. If scan discovers email exposure, the warning below will arise upon attempting to save.

Account Security as a part of Vulnerability Assessment

If the Account Security window appears on your screen with the Breaches tab, you can view this informational text and important data about past breaches:

"It has been determined that the e-mail address in this account has been included in the following data breaches that have occurred before. A data breach is an event in which data is accessed and exposed in an unauthorized manner, usually due to inadequate access controls or security weaknesses in software."

  • During this step, an Account Security window will appear as part of Timus's Vulnerability Assessment, presenting you with two options:

  • If you select the Cancel option, the user will not be created due to being breached, and you wil go back to the Create User screen again automatically.

  • If you choose to Continue, the user will be created. We strongly advise you to carefully review the list of Breaches, which includes details such as the Source, Domain, Data Classes, Data Count, and Date. This information will help you make an informed decision about the user's security.

The breached email address check does not include a check for breached or disclosed passwords.
