Adding or Updating User Information

Sym has published a set of community scripts to make it easy to provide the necessary information.

  1. Download the current user details with symflow users edit symusers.csv.
  2. [Optional] Add any new emails to the file symusers.csv. Note: re-uploading existing users will have no impact (update acts like patch).
  3. Run it through the populate users community script on github to add integration-specific details (like AWS principal ID).
  4. Review the modified user list using your favorite CSV editor (Google Sheets, Excel, vi, emacs).
  5. Make any updates for missing values (like a non-standard email address for an integration with PagerDuty).
  6. Upload updated user list back to sym with symflow users update symusers.csv.
