Add Applications in Bulk

Administration Guide

You can bulk-add a list of applications in XML format to quickly populate your application portfolio. If you have the Security Lead role you can use the Bulk Add Applications functionality to upload an XML file that lists all the details for all the applications. If you prefer, you can also use the Excel template provided to list all your bulk information, but you must save the file as XML.
