Configuring DEX for MSIS 2.0 is fully automated and requires user intervention for these steps:
Under the Plugin Management Configuration screen, enable the PowerSchool Data Exchange (DEX) plugin.
Under the General Setup of DEX, add the Authentication Key and Secret from the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE), turn the system on, and test the connection to the MSIS 2.0 ODS.
After step 1, a new CEDS 2023-2024 profile is added to the PowerSchool Data Exchange (DEX). The profile code is CEDS_MS_1 and the profile is enabled.
The detailed instructions for step 2 are as follows:
Go to System Administrator, Data Exchange, and click General Setup.
Under the General Options, select the On option for the System Enabled field.
Under the Communication Settings, the fields are pre-configured as follows:
