Performing Mass Actions for Users

Mass actions allow you to perform potentially tedious tasks for multiple users at the same time. You can use the JSS to perform the following mass actions:

  • Add users to a site.

  • Delete users from the JSS.

Mass actions can be performed on static or smart group membership lists or user search results.

Adding Multiple Users to a Site

You can use the JSS to add multiple users to a site from static or smart group membership lists or user search results. When you add multiple users to a site, those users retain previous site memberships.

You can only add multiple users to a site if there are one or more sites in the JSS. (For more information, see Sites.)

  1. Log in to the JSS with a web browser.

  2. Click Users at the top of the page.

  3. Do one of the following:

  4. At the bottom of the list, click Action.

  5. Select Add Users to a Site.

  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to add users to a site.

Mass Deleting Users

You can mass delete users from the JSS.

If you have site access only and you mass delete users that belong to the site, the users are deleted from the full JSS (not just the site).

A user cannot be deleted from the JSS if there are dependencies for the user. For example, a user cannot be deleted if the user is assigned to a mobile device.

  1. Log in to the JSS with a web browser.

  2. Click Users at the top of the page.

  3. Do one of the following:

  4. At the bottom of the list, click Action .

  5. Select Delete Users.
    A list of dependencies is displayed if you cannot delete users. The number of users is displayed next to the dependency.

  6. Follow the onscreen instructions to delete users.
