Manually Formatting DISS Imports for ThreatSwitch

Written by Peter Akeley
Updated over a week ago


Inconsistency in the formatting of DISS subject reports has created problems for ThreatSwitch users attempting to import Access and Eligibility information into the application. As of October 4th, 2022, changes were made to the column headers and data structure of the subject report.


If you are still having trouble importing DISS subject report data into ThreatSwitch:

  • Make sure the subjects you are importing from DISS have a valid social security number associated with their ThreatSwitch profile. ThreatSwitch uses Social Security number to match data from DISS with the proper ThreatSwitch record. Other values such as names cannot be used to import data as they cannot be relied upon to accurately identify a single person - i.e. "Michael Smith"

  • Make sure your file is a valid CSV file with a "comma" separator. .xls or .xlsx files cannot be imported.

  • Make sure the headers in your DISS record match those in our Sample DISS Formatting file below.
