Importing groups from excel with wrong parameters

0 votes
Hi,

I have the problem, that I want to import my network devices with their connections from an excel list.

| Group | DevType | Hostname | IP         |
|----------|--------------|---------------|-----------|
|    A      |       X       |   server1   | 1.1.1.1 |
|    A      |       Y       |   server2   | 1.1.1.2 |
|    B      |       Z       |   server3   | 1.1.1.3 |

During the import, the groups are built correctly, But the name is not shown and the group parameter (e.g. A) is shown as parameter IP.
