Hi Petr:

Thank you. This is perfect. I have to say that the more I learn about
FreeIPA, the more impressed I am with it (and I was pretty impressed to
begin with).

Regards,

Joe

A batch command might be useful for this case.

Example (note that I'm not a python guy):

#!/usr/bin/env python

import pprint
from ipalib import api

# Bootstrap
api.bootstrap_with_global_options(context='cli')
api.finalize()
api.Backend.xmlclient.connect()

# Prepare request

users = [
     (u'Foo', u'Bar', u'f...@foo.baz', u'psw1', u'Sales guy'),
     (u'John', u'Doe', u'j...@foo.baz', u'psw2', u'Tech guy'), ]

add_commands = []

for user in users:
     (firstname, surname, email, psw, desc) = user
     add_commands.append({
         "method": 'user_add',
         "params": [
             [],
             {
                 "givenname": firstname,
                 "sn": surname,
                 "mail": email,
                 "userpassword": psw,
                 "setattr": "description='"+desc+"'"
             },
         ],
     })



# Execute as batch
result = api.Command['batch'](*add_commands)

# Print
pp = pprint.PrettyPrinter()
pp.pprint(result)
