Deprecation of Users and Organizational Unit (OU) Loads and Feeds for Data Load Wizard (DLW) - August '22 Update

Data Load Wizard (DLW) is a legacy data load tool which was built on older technology, is accessed using an older user interface (UI), and experiences slow performance and limited load type support.

Edge Import addresses these issues with a modern UI and an intuitive workflow that can support a greater number of concurrent loads, while providing administrators with a delightful user experience. Edge Import offers manual loads and automated scheduled feed abilities.

Ability to perform Users and OU data loads and feeds using DLW was deprecated with an end-of-life in the May ‘22 Release for most customers. Some customers were excluded from the May ’22 deprecation schedule due to missing feature parity in Edge Import. Most of the missing parity features those customers were dependent on are available in Edge Import with the August ’22 Release.

Remaining Milestones

  • Dependent Edge Import functionality available with August ‘22 Release
    • Group and Group Membership loads
    • Employee load enhancements
      • GUID based create employee method and employee relationship fields support
      • Applicant to Employee conversion feature (Recruiting)
  • Dependent Edge Import functionality available with November ‘22 Release
    • Sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (SPII) fields – Date of Birth/SSN
  • All Data Load Wizard User and OU loads and feeds will be deprecated with the February ‘23 Release
