Edge Import - LMS Loads

With the 6 March 2020 patch release, Edge Import is available to organizations as an Early Adopter for loading Learning Management System (LMS) historical data.

Organizations are able to control their own project timelines by validating and loading LMS historical data directly to their portals using Edge Import.

Note: LMS data feeds are not supported with the February '20 release.

The following LMS data types can be imported using Edge Import:

  • Curriculum
  • Curriculum Transcript
  • External Training
  • Facility
  • ILT Events
  • ILT Session Parts
  • ILT Sessions
  • ILT Transcript
  • Instructor
  • LO (Learning Object) Equivalencies
  • Material
  • Material Transcript
  • Online Course
  • Online Course Transcript
  • Provider
  • Question Category
  • Questions
  • Subject
  • Test
  • Test Mapping
  • Test Transcript
  • Transcript Custom Fields
  • Video
  • Video Transcript

Limits and Best Practices

Environment Maximum File Size Best Practices to reduce impact
Pilot 10k rows, 150 columns
  1. Test functional use-cases, and defer to Stage for volume/load testing.
  2. Use Delta files, instead of complete loads.
  3. Break files that are larger than 10k rows to multiple files that are 10k rows or fewer.
Stage 100k rows, 150 columns
  1. Use Delta files, instead of complete loads.
  2. Break files that are larger than 100k rows to multiple files that are 100k rows or fewer.
Production 100k rows, 150 columns
  1. Use Delta files, instead of complete loads.
  2. Break files that are larger than 100k rows to multiple files that are 100k rows or fewer.

Considerations

  • LMS data feeds are not currently supported.
  • LO and transcripts related to certifications and on the job training (OJT) are not currently supported.
  • LO reversioning is not currently supported.
  • Once an LMS data load is enabled for Edge Import, the corresponding Data Load Wizard data load is disabled.

Implementation

The implementation process is dependent on whether the organization is currently using Data Load Wizard for Learning, OU, and User data loads:

  • Organizations that are currently using Data Load Wizard can enable the Edge Import data loads and feeds in the following way:
    • Between February and March 2020 - Contact Global Product Support to enable this functionality.
    • Following March 2020 - This functionality can be enabled in Pilot and Stage portals via Edge Marketplace. This only enables the loads and feeds in Edge Marketplace. Once the organization has tested the functionality, they may enable the functionality in their Production portals following the February release by contacting their Client Success Manager.
  • Organizations that are not currently using Data Load Wizard can enable the Edge Import data loads and feeds in all environments via Edge Marketplace.

Once Edge Import is activated for a load type in a portal, Data Load Wizard is permanently retired for the corresponding load type in that portal.
