This article provides an overview how to upload data to Cloud via Import Tool.
The intent of this article is not to provide an explanation on how to import this type of information as the import process must be operated and managed by an EFI consultant or a certified EFI partner. For further information on getting your data imported to LMS365, please contact your LMS365 partner or your ELEARNINGFORCE account representative. Visit this article to find out how to prepare the files in a certain format.
This Import Tool helps us to upload a lot of SCORMs/AICCs at once to the SCORM Storage on a specific Tenant. You do not need to specify any URLs (in the config file) as SCORMs/AICCs are Tenant-based. This tool can be run from any local PC by any user.
It is necessary to fill in some folders and files:
1) Elearningforce.LMS365.Import.Program.exe.config - Config file
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<add key="remUrl" value="" />
<add key="lmsCourseUrl" value="" />
<add key="userMappingFilePath" value="" />
<add key="dateTimeFormat" value="" />
<add key="coursesDataFilePath" value="" />
<add key="scormsDataFilePath" value="DataFiles/Scorms.xlsx" />
<add key="certificateTemplatesDataFilePath" value="" />
<add key="certificatesDataFilePath" value="" />
<add key="errorLogPath" value="ErrorLogs" />
<add key="generatedDataFilesPath" value="" />
<add key="apiKey" value="Required value" />
<add key="timeout" value="30" />
<add key="apiBaseAdress" value="Required value" />
<add key="courseCatalogUrl" value=" " />
<add key="containerSAS" value="Required value" />
scormsDataFilePath - is a path to the excel file with a list of uploaded SCORMs/AICCs and their options.
errorLogPath - key should be filled with the default value "ErrorLogs".
Please pay attention to these required fields:
apiKey - apikey initializes Tenant where SCORMs/AICCs are uploaded. Please send a request to LMS365 Support to get your API Key.
containerSAS - temporary storage for upload. Please send a request to LMS365 Support to get the address.
apiBaseAdress - API URL (see region based URL at http://api.365.systems/docs).

3) SCORMs folder in DataFiles directory
Add SCORM/AICC packages in Scorms folder. Describe these packages in Scorms. xlsx file
To run 'SCORM bulk upload' run Elearningforce.LMS365.Import.Program.exe and enter '3' and then 'y'.
If you need to upload 4 packages, 3 of them have been successfully uploaded and the 4th has failed - import directory will not be deleted. You need to modify .xlsx file (4th package) and run .exe again, 3 uploaded files will not be uploaded again.
