Import Biometric Devices from a CSV

The Import Biometric devices feature is used to import batches of new biometric devices.


AuthX Import Biometric devices tool imports user information from a properly formatted comma-separated values (CSV) file. This streamlined process makes it easy to create biometric devices at the same time.

CSV import values should include Device Id. Manage biometric devices created via import from the AuthX Admin Panel immediately after being created.

Role Required: Owner, Administrator and User Manager.

Creating the CSV File

The CSV file can include single data fields for each AuthX user.

Allowed Fields

The fields allowed in this CSV file are:


Device ID

The AuthX device id may include alphanumeric and special characters.

CSV File Format
