Hi Gideon,

Yes, it is possible but it will be multi-step process. Assuming that in your source file/database you have some sort of UserID:

  1. Import users using (global objects) - Typical objects - User settings in Import Toolkit. At the end you will have .fkmap file (mapping external UserID to Kentico UserID) which may be useful on next step.

  2. Import user-role assignment with (global objects) - Many to many relationships - User role settings settings in Import Toolkit. You may require to specify .fkmap from previous step to use the correct UserID

According to documentation you can import Users as well as roles.

I'm not sure if it is possible to import users, roles and user-to-roles relation all at once, but looking at many to many relation option on the first stem of import wizard I believe it should be possible to do that step by step:

  • import users
  • import roles
  • import user-to-roles relation

Hi Dmitry

Thanks for the help, I used the kentico site objects instead of Global objects.
