This form allows you to create, modify or delete many users at once from an uploaded or local text file. Each line in the file specifies one action to take, depending on its first field. The line formats are :
'create':'username':'passwd':'uid':'gid':'realname ':'homedir':'shell':'min':'max':'warn':'inactive': 'expire'
modify':'oldusername':'username':'passwd':'uid':'g id':'realname':'homedir':'shell':'min':'max':'warn ':'inactive':'expire'
In create lines, if the uid field is left empty, Webmin will assign a UID automatically. If the gid field is empty, Webmin will create a new group with the same name as the user. The username, homedir and shell fields must be supplied for every user - all other fields are allowed to be empty. If the passwd field is blank, no password will be assigned for the user. If it contains just the letter x, the account will be locked. Otherwise, the text in the field will be taken as the cleartext password and encrypted.
In modify lines, an empty field will be taken to mean that the corresponding user attribute is not to be modified.
In create and modify lines, you can optionally append extra fields containing LDAP atttributes in name=value format, to be assigned to the new or modified users
