Adding users from CSV file using PowerShell and SMSCLI

Syncplify.me Server! version: 4.0.8+

Many of our users are asking how to add multiple user accounts to Syncplify.me Server! at once. Most of them already have a CSV (comma-separated value) text file with username and passwords of the user profiles to be added, so it would make a lot of sense for them to have a simple procedure to import such users from the existing CVS file. You can actually do that very easily by writing a tiny PowerShell script that internally calls our SMSCLI (Syncplify.me Server! Command-Line Interface), and this article shows one way to do so.

The first step is to make sure that we know what VFS these imported users will be using as their “home directory”. For the sake of this example (and to keep it as easy as possible) we will use a parametric VFS like the one shown in the image here below: Continue reading

A PowerShell module to manage Syncplify.me Server!

Syncplify.me Server! version: 4.0.25+

Our users and customers are becoming more and more interested in interacting with Syncplify.me Server!’s management API (REST) via PowerShell. The ideal solution would be to have a PowerShell module that exports ready-to-consume functions, in order to make the task easier.

Kyle Parrish, one of our most active users, has recently started a GitHub repository and open-sourced his Syncplify PowerShell Module project. Syncplify will support Kyle’s effort and contribute code to this project that, hopefully, one day will grow into a full-featured PowerShell-based management tool for our server software.

Thank you Kyle! Keep up the great work!
