Below are the steps to SFTP your CSV files and how to initiate the import process into the Roster Server.
SFTP OneRoster CSV Files
1. Using an STFP program like WinSCP (https://winscp.net/eng/download.php) or FileZilla (https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client), log in with the server host information and credentials provided by ClassLink.
2. Once connected, drop the OneRoster csv files in the DailyImport folder, as shown below.
Now that the files have been uploaded, they will be imported during the set import schedule or by manually clicking the import button below.
To initiate the import, go to the IMPORT ROSTERS module -> Import Now.
After your data has been imported, scroll down to view a summary report of the import under Import Details -> Status -> click Complete for the most recent import.
The report will provide information on records added (in green), removed (in red), as well as deltas (the orange triangle), errors and warnings. If data has an error (for example, a user has no givenName in the CSV) then it will not be imported, and an error message describing why will be given in the summary. Data with a warning will be imported, but a warning will be given in the summary. Deltas are data that exists on the server that was changed on a subsequent import (for example, a class period was changed from one import to the next).
