Import an organizational hierarchy

You can create a new organizational hierarchy or update an existing one using an import .csv file. Include the hierarchical node in the Node Name column and the path in the Node Path column of the import file.
To modify an existing organizational hierarchy, follow the steps in Export an organizational hierarchy, save and update the downloaded .csv file, then import the updated organizational hierarchy.
  • The import .csv file must have the two required columns Node Name and Node Path.
  • Both required columns must contain a value. Empty cells in the .csv file will result in an error.
  • The import process replaces the existing organizational hierarchy.
  • Do not include double slashes (//) in the node path or node name.
  • Do not include duplicate records in the import .csv file.
  • The first level of each path should be the root node and represented as a forward slash (/).
  • Up to 30 levels are allowed in one node path.
  • Up to 500 nodes can be imported in a single import.
