Preparing CSV file


You can download an example file from here. Or you can prepare the CSV file for your list of devices manually. The list must be comprised of devices LAN MAC addresses, Serial numbers (IMEIs for TRB), and Name columns. You must save it as a CSV file. You can create/edit CSV files with programs like Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice Calc, or a simple text editor like Notepad, which we'll use for this example.

Create a new text file and set the order of device parameters in the first line. For example:

mac,serial,name

Single entry for single device consists of the device's LAN MAC address (or IMEI) and serial number separated by commas (,). Each line should contain information about a single device (see example below).

Important!

  • Do not forget to save your file as *.csv.
  • If you are editing the file with Notepad. Click the "Save As" option. Then next to "Save as type", choose "All Files" and add the .csv extension next to the file name.
  • If you're using Linux, you can add the same extension to the file name after saving the file the regular way).
