[Deploying Sakai] Simple SIS Integration

Did you try the curl approach? [1] Curl is available for windows. [2]

Or are you getting an error? Please post if so.

Your CSV feed should only include users who are unknown to LDAP. If all users are known to LDAP, don't send people.csv.

To connect enrollment records to any Sakai user, LDAP sourced or otherwise, user identifiers in the CSV files must match Sakai user EIDs. Sakai user EIDs are almost always user net IDs, i.e. the username token provided at login.

Hello all, 

I am looking for some help with importing csv files into our sakai environment. We are running sakai on a Windows server with sakai 2.6.0 and tomcat 5.5.26 and MySQL server. 

I found the sakora project and I believe it is successfully installed along with the messageservice, but I can’t find how to run the csv files through sakora. Is there any additional documentation that someone can provide with additional directions on how to run the csv files on windows? 

We are also going to use LDAP to authenticate users. Is there additional configuration with sakora or the csv files that will connect the LDAP users to their correct course enrollments in sakai?
