Overview and Features

PowerSchool's Data Exchange uses Ed-Fi web services to provide interoperability between PowerSchool applications, including eSchoolPlus, and the state or district hosted Ed-Fi ODS. As application data changes, Data Exchange identifies, validates, and securely publishes data via Ed-Fi in near real-time and provides a rich user experience to monitor operations and review and diagnose any data quality issues.

Data Exchange opens to the Data Exchange Publishing page that lists all existing profiles as tabs. Access selectors at the top of the page to choose the school year and to select which schools to work with. You can select District Office to work at the district level, or you can select a specific school. Profile tabs let you select a configured destination for data to be sent. In most cases, there will only be a single tab but it is possible for Data Exchange to manage multiple destinations from this same page. The page displays categories in the order they should be managed and reviewed. Within each category, one or more Ed-Fi resources (record types) are displayed for which data can be published and reviewed. Select a resource to review the data and drill down on the details. Current status displays at both the category and resource levels to provide a quick overview and to focus your efforts to remedy dependencies or errors.

Use the Settings button at the top right of the page to access the Configure, Download, and Mapping pages. These are usually accessed when the system is first set up, but there may be reasons to periodically revisit the download and mapping pages to ensure this information is kept up-to-date.
