Opmantek How-To: Quickly import devices from CSV into Open-AudIT

Join Paul McClendon, an Opmantek Support Engineer, as he demonstrates how to import devices, using a CSV file, into Open-AudIT.

It is possible to import one or many devices using a CSV file, Audit Script Result or an NMIS Nodes file.

Go to menu: Manage -> Devices -> Import Devices from CSV (you can also choose Audit Script Result or NMIS Nodes file.)

Below is an example of the required CSV format:

The minimum required attributes for attributes are ‘name’ and ‘org_id’.

You should not include the edited_by and edited_date fields. These will be automatically set.

If you include the “id” field and set it with a number, that item will be updated rather than created.

You should use a header line containing the names of the columns you wish to populate, then your data lines below that.

"name","org_id","type","ip"
"mail","1","computer","192.168.1.110"
"router","1","router","192.168.1.1"
"laser","1","printer","192.10"

Opmantek How-To: Quickly Create Organizations in Open-AudIT

Join Paul McClendon, an Opmantek Support Engineer, as he demonstrates how to create organizations to be used in Open-AudIT.

Orgs (Organisations) in Open-AudIT are a key item. A user has a primary Org as well as a list of Orgs they can access. A user combines this with a list of assigned ‘Roles’ that define what actions they can take on items assigned to the Orgs they have access to. The combination of a users ‘Orgs’ and ‘Roles’ define what they can and cannot do within Open-AudIT.

Most items in Open-AudIT are assigned to an Org, Devices, Locations, Networks, etc, etc.

Orgs can have child Orgs. Think of an organisational chart (tree) structure. If a user has access to a specific Org, they also have access to that Orgs descendants.
