Archer Authoritative Source Data Feed Tool & Utility
The Archer Authoritative Source Data Feed offering enables Archer administrators to simplify the content package import process. Due to the requirement to modify key fields, and then run an import for each file in every package, the data import process for content can be time consuming. The Archer Authoritative Source Data Feed tool & utility includes five data feeds that, once configured, allow users to simply drop in Content files thereafter for easy import. No key fields require modification and the data feeds can be run once for all the Content packs the end user wants to import.
With this offering, five data feeds are provided – one for each level in the Authoritative Sources application and an additional one for the Control Standards application. These are the most commonly updated content files and the only ones that require key field modification. These feeds allow you to easily bring new content into your Archer instance.
Important: Archer must be configured for File Transporter feeds prior to running the Archer Authoritative Source Data Feed. Perform the necessary tests to confirm the required configuration before proceeding. Additionally, for the data feeds to execute successfully, the server responsible for running the data feed must have the required access to the files. The Data Feed Manager can access files located on a network server that is accessible to the Data Feed Manager.
The Archer Authoritative Source Data Feed tool & utility enables organizations to:
Quickly import content into the Authoritative Sources and Control Standards application
Remove the need to make configuration changes in the application prior to importing
Allow multiple content packs to be imported with each feed
