Product: Roster Server
Audience: ClassLink Administrator
Exporting roster data in CSV format is possible by using the Roster Server Export application, available in the Apps list.
If you would like to view the data as it stands in Roster Server, you must manually add the Export application to your Apps.
After you have added it, you are able to set permissions to it as you see fit. If you want a comprehensive list of all your roster data, then you must select Full Permissions.
Using the Export application is preferable to running imports from the ClassLink application, as the Export application was intended for one-time exports. The ClassLink application must always have full permissions to work in conjunction with OneClick.
We advise against using vendor applications to test CSV exports, as once you set permissions for those applications, the vendors can access the data through our REST API.
The Export application is a safe way to ensure your data looks the way it should inside of Roster Server. It is meant as a way for school districts to test different types of CSV export options with varying permissions.
What If I Don't Have a Local Server?
You also have the option of sending data to the DailyImport directory. Just keep in mind that the files will overwrite the original contents of the folder.
If you do not have the rosterdata credentials, you will need to contact ClassLink help desk for the credentials as well as provide your public IP address for whitelisting so you can access your server.
Zipped Export Files?
You also have the option to export your files into a zipped folder. If you choose to export into a zipped folder, you will also be given the choice of customizing the name of your folder.
If the Custom File Name is left empty, then the folder name will default to OneRoster.zip. You also have the option of appending the current date to the export folder by clicking the checkbox below the name input field.
The exported zipped folder from the above picture will be called CustomName - 5-13-2020 where "5-13-2020" is the current date.
