Accessing ELIS Data Hub


ELIS Data Hub is accessed through the Curriculum Administration block on the site home page. Go to the Curriculum Administration block > Admin > Data Hub. Data Hub opens on the general tab, select other tab to navigate DH.

Data Hub General tab


Import All


The 'Import all' button will import and process all three file types in the order they are displayed on the General tab - user, course, and then enrollments. For example, by importing all three file types at once you can:
  1. add users to the site,
  2. create courses, and
  3. enroll the users in the courses.
You'll want to create the files according to the documentation on the following pages. Be sure to enter the correct file names on the user, course, and enrollment tabs and save the changes before importing files.

Import files can be set to run automatically as frequently as every 5 minutes. Go to the Site Administration block > Modules > Blocks > Data Hub > Import period to edit these settings.

Data Hub import period settings

Note: When using the Import All button do not upload empty files to be processed, this will cause the subsequent files to be deleted without processing and won't produce an error message. For example, if you upload/process all three files but the user file was blank, then the course and enrollment files would be deleted without processing and the log file will show all 3 files processed successfully. To avoid this don't include empty files. In the example, if the user file was omitted from the import folder then there would be no error, the course and enrollment files would be processed successfully. This issue will be fixed in the Data Hub re-write, due to be released with ELIS 1.9.3.


Export Now


The 'Export now' button exports user data for courses in a CSV format. Export files can be set to run automatically as frequently as every 5 minutes. Go to the Site Administration block > Modules > Blocks > Data Hub > Export period to edit these settings.

All the CSV export files are stored in the Export file location, the file location is shown on the Data Hub block configuration screen.
