Importing IT Glue Data

Passportal users are now able to import their IT Glue data directly into Documentation Manager by using our IT Glue Document Uploader tool.

Once you have exported from IT Glue, Passportal's IT Glue Document Uploader can be used to easily and quickly import all of your IT Glue records including:

  • Passwords
  • Files
  • Documents
  • Assets
  • Articles
  • Contacts
  • Locations

The IT Glue import can import custom documents from IT Glue, however if you have edited a default section of IT Glue and added elements, or changed the names of elements, then those items will not be imported.

Excluded From Import

IT Glue user audit history and permissions are not imported but will be audited through Documentation Manager going forward, as with all other data.

As permissions are not carried over, it is highly recommended that you create security and permission groups prior to creating users to help accommodate your current access rights and structure.
