Import / export users via CSV files

Project description


This plone product allows you to import / export portal’s members within CSV files. Few properties may equally been set.


  • after being installed with the Quickinstaller tool, it adds an additional item in the control panel.

  • Informations concerned are those managed by portal_registration and portal_membership. (i.e. username, password, roles, emails, location, description …)

  • A CSV template is directly available via the control panel, to use as a base for your own CSV file.

  • There is no pretreatment. Data are used out-of-the-box. If any error occured in the CSV while importing, you have to correct those yourself.

  • On errors, this product allows you to download a CSV file only filled with the matching lines. Use it to correct your errors, then retry.


  • Use buildout, add atreal.usersinout in both of your egg and zcml sections.


Off course, those functionalities are only available for member with ‘Manager’ role.


  • Adding member in group(s) is now supported, but currently the export not implemented.

  • Global roles can be imported but currently not exported. Will be implemented soon.
