Importing Users and Groups Using EdeXML (ParnasSys and Esis)

Both ParnasSys and Esis can generate an EdeXML file which contains relevant information about the school like groups, students, and teachers. Jamf School can import this file, making setup a lot easier.

This involves the following steps:

  • Generate the EdeXML file from ParnasSys or Esis

  • Import the generated file to Jamf School

Generate the EdeXML File


  1. In ParnasSys, go to School > Export > Edex.

  2. Choose version “1.03”.

  3. Click Genereer Edex bestanden.


  1. In Esis, go to Uitvoer > Export > EdeXML.

  2. Save the generated files to a folder on your computer.

Import the File to Jamf School

  1. In Jamf School, navigate to Organization > Import/Export in the sidebar.

  2. Click Import users from EdeXML.

  3. Select the XML file you’ve just generated from ParnasSys or Esis.

  4. Leave the Automatically create students groups option checked if you want to create student groups and make a student a member of the group they’re in according to the EdeXML file.

  5. Select the default group for both the Students and Teachers. Students will become a member of both the selected groups and the group in the EdeXML file if the Automatically create students groups option is checked.

  6. Click the Start Import button. You will be directed to the Import/Export page again where you can see the progress of the task.

  7. Once finished, you can view how many users and groups are imported, or download the log file that Jamf School generated.
    Note: Log files are automatically deleted every night at 00:00.
