How can we create bulk contacts in catalog application


Release: CASVCT99000-14.1-Service Catalog


This can be achieved using the 'UserService' web service provided by catalog

Run the "createUser" method for contacts creation in Catalog. You may have to loop the web services method multiple times for each contact to be created.

Below is the sample envelope for single user creation using web services


<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:soapenv="" xmlns:ser="" xmlns:soapenc="">



      <ser:createUser soapenv:encodingStyle="">

         <sessionID xsi:type="xsd:string">SESSIONID</sessionID>

         <userObj xsi:type="urn:User" xmlns:urn="urn:usmUserService">

            <userID xsi:type="xsd:string">USERID</userID>
