Adding Import and Export Jobs

Adding Jobs

  1. Click the Settings tab.
  2. Select Import/Export Management. 
  3. The Job List page will be displayed.
  4. Click New Job.
  5. Choose ATE Job.
    There is a second job type available on this selection menu - SSIS Job. An SSIS job is a different import technology that was developed to enhance the performance of very long-running jobs with large amounts of data. This option only applies to specific, targeted imports performed by Astra staff.
  6. On the New Job window, select a job Type (i.e. Import or Export), a job Mode (i.e. Batch, Realtime, or On-Demand), and a configuration file appropriate for your system (i.e. Banner section import, PeopleSoft section export, etc) using the drop-down list and click Continue.


  7. Enter a job name. This should be a name that will serve to remind you of the reason for the job and to help distinguish it from others on the list.
  8. Enter a job description if desired.
  9. Select any applicable job filter options (i.e. term or campus).
    The list of terms and campuses corresponds to the terms and campuses created in Astra Schedule. The SIS names of these items must match in order for the import of data to be successful.
  10. Enter any other applicable SIS connection information (i.e. user ID and password for the SIS system login).
  11. Click Save.
