Importing via Data Exchange
Data Exchange allows for bulk importing and/or updating records from an external source. When configured correctly, this mechanism can be used to bulk assign mobile credentials.

The below are items that are specific to mobile credential imports:
The Date Exchange license must be enabled in order to bulk insert Farpointe Data mobile credentials.

  • The data source must map a "dummy" card number
    Once the mobile credential is issued the imported "dummy' card number will be updated with the actual credential number.
  • Facility code -2 must be mapped to the Facility Code field
  • The users email address must be mapped to the Contact Information field
  • The number 1 must be mapped to the Credential Type field in order to create Farpointe Data credentials
