Add Devices from CSV file

Sample Mobile Filter CSV File

To import multiple devices from a CSV file go to mobile.lsfilter.com select Devices > Add devices > Add from CSV. The first column must be titled “mac_address” with the addresses below it, 1 per cell. The second column must be titled “schoolid” and needs to contain your school ID. You can find your school ID by going to Web Filter > Mobile Devices > School ID on your Rocket. This ID is based on what tier you want the device to be automatically registered to.

The following shows the correct format for the CSV file.

Sample CSV file

Transparent Tier Registration

When the Rocket has multiple tiers and a Mobile Filter connects to it for the first time the Rocket will redirect the client to the School ID page where the client will input the school ID to identify what tier/school they are part of.

With transparent tier registration you can import the device’s MAC address into mobile.lsfilter.com along with the corresponding school ID. This allows the device on checkin to provide the needed client information so that when a policy query is made the Rocket can automatically bind the device without user interaction. This allows the device to be bound to the correct tier based on school ID.

You can find your school ID by logging into your Rocket and then making sure the correct tier is selected. Next, click Web Filterand then Mobile Devices. Your school ID is listed in the School ID table on this page.
