How to Import Records to XTAM from Third Party Systems

The Import option available in XTAM allows any permitted user (Editor, Owner or System Administrator) to import their existing records and connections from several popular sources, including CSV, Remote Desktop Connection Manager and PuTTY. During the import process, the folders and records contained within your files will be created in XTAM using their commonly shared parameters like name, description, host and port.

This will assist in getting users to more quickly adopt XTAM as the interface will look like an experience in which they are familiar.

1

Import from a CSV File (can be used for mRemote and other connection manager “Export to CSV” options)

2

Import from a Remote Desktop Connection Manager save file (.rdg)

Please note that exported Remote Desktop Connection Manager and PuTTY sessions use encryption for passwords, certificates and keys. Due to the possibility of someone using XTAM as a means of decryption, these fields will not be included with our Import process and as a result, any record that contains one of these fields will need to edited to include their value before it can be used in XTAM.
