You are trying to import users to your SAP BusinessObjects Cloud using a CSV (Comma Separate Values) file. When importing users you get the following error:

Reproducing the Issue
Try to upload a CSV file containing space characters in the User ID. For example:
my user,Joe,Smith,Joe Smith,firstname.lastname@example.org
Your CSV file contains a User ID with characters not allowed in SAP BusinessObjects Cloud.
Verify that your list of User IDs contain allowed characters. According to the Product Documentation:
Only the following characters are permitted: uppercase letters, digits, underscores, hash marks, and ampersands. Spaces are not allowed in the user ID. The maximum length is 127 characters.
