Edge Import - New Organizational Unit Load Types (Group)

With this enhancement, Edge Import now provides the ability to import Group organizational unit (OU) metadata as well as user membership details. Both manual loads and automated feeds are supported for these two new load types. This functionality enables organizations to maintain their group data in bulk and migrate from Data Load Wizard (DLW).

The Group Load supports the following functionality:

  • Create new groups
  • Update existing group metadata, including the following:
    • Standard and custom fields
    • Group hierarchy
    • Localization (Translation load)

The Group Membership Load supports the following functionality:

  • Assign groups to users
  • Remove users from groups

With the legacy Group load in Data Load Wizard, group organization unit data and membership data were managed in a single load type. With Edge Import, this is now managed in two separate load types.


This functionality is automatically enabled for all organizations using Edge Import.

Access to this load is controlled by the new Access Edge Import Workflow - Group permission.

The template guides in Edge Import will contain additional information for the new load types.

Customers who have not purchased Edge Import can initiate purchase of Edge Import from the “Edge Import” tile in Edge Marketplace.
