Using the Bulk Administration Tool, you can perform bulk transactions to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database,
including importing and updating large numbers of end users, phones, and ports, in a single process. The Bulk Administration
Tool allows you to import the end user list, and end user configurations, from a CSV file into the database.
For details on how to use the Bulk Administration Tool to import end users, see the Bulk Administration Guide for Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Assign any local end users that you provision to an access control group with the required role permissions. Local users include
any manually provisioned end users as well as any end users whom you import using the Bulk Administration Tool. Local users
have a User Status of 'Active Local User' in End User Configuration.
Assign a feature group template for the end user. When you assign the feature group template, the system assigns to the end
user the user profile, service profile, universal line and device templates, and self-provisioning settings that are associated
to that feature group template.

For LDAP Synchronized users that were assigned to an access control group during the LDAP sync, you can also use this procedure

From Cisco Unified CM Administration, choose User Management > End User.
Click Find and select the end user.
Click the Edit Credential button that corresponds to the password or PIN, depending on the credential to which you want to apply the credential policy.

Group Template to Local End Users
Assign a feature group template to a local
end user. A local end user is an end user who has been either added to the database manually, or imported using the Bulk
Administration Tool. Local end users are not synchronized with an external LDAP directory.
