Import Application List

You can import a list of private applications rather than adding them individually. Your list of applications must be in a CSV format. You can create the CSV file using any text editor. The imported items are added to the Applications page. 

Before you begin

The .csv file must meet these requirements.

  • The file contains one list item per row.
  • The columns are separated by one of these characters: whitespace, tab, comma, semicolon, or a custom character.
  • The characters in the file are encoded with UTF-8 encoding.

When you configure the import settings for the .csv file, you can:

  • Specify whether there is a header row.
  • Exclude rows from the import that start with the character you specify.
  • Avoid duplicate entries.
  • Specify whether leading and trailing whitespace is trimmed from the values in the columns.
  • Use the backslash character to include special characters. For example, you can use this option when the list items include the column separator. In this example, the column separator is a comma.

 The following table shows the headers that are mandatory in the CSV file:

Header name Description
Application Name Name of the private application. 
Protocol Protocol used to connect an application. Supported protocols are HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, RDP, and Others (TCP).

Note: Only port 443 port and HTTPS protocol is supported for Clientless Access.
Host Enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the application. Do not use smart match or IP address for the hostname.
Port The port used to connect an application for the selected protocol. You can enter the port number you want to use.
Application Group  The application group name (mandatory)
Connector Group The connector group name (optional).
Displays Yet to be assigned on the Applications page when you import with this field empty. You can assign it to a connector group later.
Clientless Access Enter True to enable Clientless Access and False to disable Clientless Access

Note: Skyhigh Private Access previews the CSV file data when you import. It skips a row if it can't interpret the data for any reason. Click Download the skipped lines to download the skipped entries. The downloaded file contains the entry (row) along with the reason that caused the error.   


Complete the following to import a CSV file:

  1. On the navigation bar, click the Settings icon.
  2. From the drop-down list, select Infrastructure → Private Access Configuration.
  3. Click the Applications tab.
  4. From the Actions drop-down list, click Import Application List.
  5. In your file browser, select a .csv file to import, then click Open.
  6. In the Import CSV dialog box, select the column separator, then configure these options:
    1. Select First line contains column headers if the .csv file includes a header row.
    2. Select Ignore lines beginning with character to specify a character to exclude the specified rows from the import. 
    3. Select Use "\" for escaping special characters when you want the import to interpret the character following the backslash as a character instead of as a column separator.
    4. Select Trim leading and trailing whitespace to trim leading and trailing whitespace from the values in the columns.
  7. Click Import, then click Save.
    You can publish saved changes to the cloud now or keep working and publish later.
