Import wizard

The Import wizard guides you through importing IP addresses and subnets. 

You can complete the following tasks with the Import wizard:

  • Determine where IP address information is imported to.
  • Distribute date in existing IP addresses across the subnet tree.
  • Automatically create subnets upon import.
  • Import IP4 & IP6 Groups, Supernets, and IPV6 Global prefixes, including a subnet tree hierarchy.
  • Maintain user delegation permissions for imported data.

Only a .csv, .xls or .xlsx file can be imported. For an example of spreadsheets, click Download an example spreadsheet for IP addresses or subnets.
