Working with Export Destinations

Admissions provides several options to download the exports you create. Aside from directly downloading exports to your computer, you can have your files sent to the online destination of your choice. Through the Export Destinations feature, you can establish where you'd like your exports to be sent.

SFTP

SSH File Transfer Protocol, or SFTP is a network protocol that facilitates file transfer and manipulation over a secure data stream.To create an Export Destination using an SFTP account:

  1. Navigate to the Settings menu and select Destinations under Exports from the Menu Bar.

  4. If desired, enable the Encrypt with a Public PGP key option, then enter your PGP key information.
  5. Click Create.
  6. Once your information is validated, the Export Destination is added.

Webhook

A webhook is an event notification transmitted online to provide another application with real-time information. If you or your technical staff understand how webhooks work, you can create one in Admissions to have your data sent directly to the compatible application of your choice.

To configure a webhook as an Export Destination:

  1. Navigate to the Settings menu and select Destinations under Exports from the Menu Bar.

  3. Enter your webhook data. The webhook configuration settings here are determined by the requirements of your webhook destination. Since this data is provided by a third party, you'll need to consult your endpoint service documentation for these details and for help with testing your webhook settings.
