User import API

You can import users and settings from third-party systems, databases or spreadsheets using API. It requires API authorization. To do that, include the APIKEY that can be found in the Watcher settings in the x-vsaas-api-key HTTP header.

To import a list of users, create a CSV file and send it to:


CSV file fields:

  • login — the main user ID for authentication
  • email — used for password recovery.
  • password — plain text password.
  • is_active — 1: active user; 0: blocked user.
  • is_admin — 1: administrator user; 0: regular user.
  • note — a comment to this user.

Command-line import:

curl --data-binary @mydata.csv -H 'Content-type:text/plain; charset=utf-8' \
-H 'x-vsaas-api-key: YOUR_API_KEY' http://WATCHER-HOSTNAME/vsaas/api/v2/users/import
