7. Click Test Connection and a message of success will appear.
8. Turn the Enabled switch on.
9. Click Run Connection (This may take a while)
10. On the left menu, select Daily Sync and turn the Sync button on and choose a sync schedule.
11. On the top menu, click Import -> Import Now and your files will appear. This document will help as well.

We have SIS-specific instructions available to assist in setting up the connector. Instructions are available for the following SIS providers:
- Blackbaud ON
- eSchool Plus
Proper URL Format
Using the API connector requires not only a valid key, secret, or token, but also a correctly formatted URL. Even if the other credentials are correct, an unformatted URL will still result in a failed connection test.
Below are some guidelines on how URLs should look like. Make sure your API URL looks similar to these.
For the URL field, use the base URL for your Aeries Web application. If you are uncertain of the base URL, simply browse to your Aeries login page, then copy everything before the last slash (“/”) in the browser’s address bar.
