You can perform bulk operations on resources by using a CSV-formatted file or by creating or specifying the data to apply for the operation.
Figure 5–13 shows the launch page for bulk operations using a create action.
The options available for the bulk resource operation depend on the Action you select for the operation. You can specify a single action to apply to the operation or select From Action List to specify multiple actions.
Actions. To specify a single action, select one of the following options: create, clone, update, delete, change password, reset password.
For a single action selection, you will be presented with options to specify the resource involved with the action. For a Create action, you will specify the resource type.
If you specify From Action List, use the Get action list from area to specify either the file to use that contains the actions or the actions you specify in the Input area.
The actions you enter in the input area list or in the file must be in comma-separated value (CSV) format.
Maximum Results Per Page. Use this option to specify the maximum number of bulk action results to display on each task results page. The default value is 200.
Click Launch to start the operation, which runs as a background task.
