What is a local user for you, a user on System level?

Are you talking about tenant local users? or federation of a tenant ADs to their Org VDC?

you question is too broad for a reasonable answer, please can you be more specific.

I'm referring to the local users that are created for each "Organizations"

Steps that I'm currently following:

  • Login into VCD.
  • Click on Manage Organizations under the "Organizations" tab.
  • Click on any Organization from the list.
  • Once the respective Organization tab opens up, click on "Administration"
  • Click on Users under Members section.
  • Add users for this ORG.

Thats the correct steps for creating Local Users for the Org. Are you trying to import Local users created in System Org into the Tenant Org?

Right, I'm trying to import Local users directly into the tenant ORG. I know I can do so for LDAP, but these are local users. Is there a way to do this via CSV file or something like that?

Mass creation of users is an option. For example can you use my PowerShell Function to loop through a CSV List: VMware-vCD-Module/New-MyOrgAdmin.psm1 at master · mycloudrevolution/VMware-vCD-Module · GitHub for user creation.

But these is not the same like "Import from System". Passwords and Permission are not identical.

Best regards,

Markus
