ELIS Data Hub file location settings

  1. Import files path: This is where files will be placed to be processed by Data Hub. Files can be uploaded here via SFTP, a username and password will be provided by Remote-Learner staff for SFTP access. The files placed here must be scheduled to run. Manually run files can be uploaded directly through the Data Hub UI.

  3. Course import filename: This is configurable. Data Hub will look for this file name in the import file location when running a scheduled job. The name of the file and the name entered here in the settings must match or the file will not be processed.
  4. Enrollment import filename: This is configurable.
