Personas 2.0: How to add 2000 users using admin_ui?

Hi Personas 2.0 experts,

This is rather "simple" but also "complex" practical issue:

I made a Personas 2.0 app for my company, and it is being used in production which I am proud of (I guess SAP also like to hear). But I am having a practical issue now: I need to to add more than 2000 users for this app!

I used to use admin_ui tool to add a few testing users for the app. Does anyone know how to add such a big number of users for a Personas 2.0 app? Do I have to do all these manually? Please advise! Is there any automatic way (I have only initials of the users)?

Thanks you so much in advance!

    There's nothing directly in Personas, no. There are numerous tools for doing this sort of thing, including LSMW and ECATT directly in SAP, along with 3rd party tools like Winshuttle and others to take data from a spreadsheet, if you have access to them.

    Or you could ask one of your ABAP developers to write something based around a BDC, I guess.

    For all of these you will, of course, need the usernames, not the users' initials.

    I have Personas 3.0 and none of my systems have 2.0 on anymore so sadly I cannot give you specific table names.

    PersonalIy, would find the table where the users are assigned to flavours, then write a program that will upload the usernames from an excel into this table.

    This is what I would try and do, obviously you need to do your own checks to ensure that this method would be ok.

    I would expect one of the Personas team to come along and give you a concrete solution, but until then I can only tell you what I would try and do 😉

    Hi Dong,

    Glad to hear you are live with your Personas flavors.

    If you are using Personas 2.0 SP03 and have all your 2000 users created and added to PFCG role then you can use "Mass Group Maintenance" screen in Personas admin ui to sync PFCG role to Personas group (and assign default system and role to those users).

    It can also be scheduled as a background job to run nighly or weekly to sync new users in PFCG to Personas.

    Thanks
