Maintenance

The Maintenance section has some infrequently used items, such as buttons to import data from CSV (e.g. to transfer users, courses, branches etc from another system or database), to enter your registration key for eFrontPro (so you can activate the product and receive updates) and to see the web server’s and PHP’s status.

Maintenance page

The available actions are:

Import from CSV

Let’s you mass import Users, Courses, Sessions, Branches, Jobs, Skills, and other system types from a comma separated value (CSV) file directly into the LMS. You have the option to merge or ignore entries already existing on the system (duplicates).

Import from CSV

Server Information

Backup

This page allows you to create backup files and store them inside platform in case you need them in the future (for example if you accidentally delete anything that you want to be restored). You can also import the entire data from another eFrontPro installations by restorin backup files from other installations

Backup and restore

Error Log

This page offers the ability to check the error log messages created from server when something goes wrong. It shows the description of the error allowing us to find out what can be the reason of the problem and fix it.

Auto sync

A common need in enterprise environments is for a way to keep user data synchronized across different systems. To achieve this, administrators usually employ elaborate schemes, involving complex system and database scripts. These can be hard to maintain, prone to errors and difficult to keep track of. eFrontPro comes with a powerful engine that can periodically parse CSV data found in specific folders, and update its own data. It will also export results, and notify the administrator if anything goes wrong. The first step is for the administrator to create an import task that will run periodically. In order to match the needs of a diverse audience, there's a trove of different configuration settings, most of which are rather self-explanatory. You can also setup data exports, similar to imports. Again, configuration settings are abundant, but kept as simple as possible.

Scheduler

In Logger page you can see active tasks with their basic options and in Settings page to setup the Data-Set Base Path

Subscription

Here you can view your license key, and related details about your installation (version number, activation date, expiration date, etc) and update your installation to the latest version.
