"user2@localhost.loc";"User2";"Registered";"letmein";;"Registered/HRgroup"
"user3@localhost.loc";"User3";"Public";"letmein";"Registered/Workgroup"

To remove assigned user groups of a user, use usergroup_name_delete field with user group names seperated by | from which user needs to be removed from
