Estimated Effort: 2 hours to generate public/private key pair and test SFTP connection
The SIS file is a tab-delimited text file, containing the full information for all potential users of the site. This file will be sent to TD via automated nightly SFTP.
See SIS/HR Data (ISSS) for more detailed documentation on the required format of the SIS file. In addition, some data in the file must also use the SEVIS-required codes.
The SIS file generally includes all admitted and enrolled international students.
A draft of the student file must be submitted to TD via SFTP by the end of the first intensive integration week. A finalized file with production data must be submitted to TD by the end of the second intensive integration week. After that, additional edits may be requested as necessary.
- 30-40 hours to program the data file extract
- 8-10 hours to determine additional optional data to include in the file and obtain permissions from the campus data steward.
HR data may be transferred in a separate flat file, or it may be included in the same file as student/applicant/user data with a flag to indicate who should be considered as HR.
The file must contain the entire population of potential staff users.
(see SIS/HR Data (ISSS) for more detailed documentation on the required format of the SIS file)
Estimated Effort: 2-4 hours to program the data file and set up the SFTP
When a campus user attempts to login to the Terra Dotta system, the system sends a request for user authentication and the user's "UUUID" (Unique, Universal, and Unchanging ID) to the institutional user authentication service. User access is granted based on the response from the institutional system.
