How can we filter the data before importing a CSV into Saviynt? For instance, if the CSV contains various users with different user types (such as employees and contractors), and we only want to import users with "employee" as their user type, is there a method to accomplish this without manually modifying the CSV?

I came across a similar discussion where they recommended utilizing a pre-processor to accomplish this task. @Raghu

How can we employ a pre-processor to selectively filter out users before initiating the import process?



Hi @Chirag_Gupta ,

Inline-Preprocessor is the answer for your question.

Refer below documentation to prepare the code:

Sample code to refer:


"USERS": "SELECT username,COMPANYNAME,employeetype FROM USERS"
"DELETE FROM NEWUSERDATA where NEWUSERDATA.employeetype!='Employee'"


Use this code in the user import before 'Upload and Preview':
