PowerSchool Data Exchange
Enable PowerSchool Data Exchange Plugin
DEX is delivered to PowerSchool as a plugin. You must enable the plugin to be able to have access to the data exchange components, such as Ed-Fi. The DEX plugin is installed automatically as part of state reporting releases and can be enabled on the Plugin Management Dashboard.
Configure PowerSchool Data Exchange
The Data Exchange Setup page provides a user interface for entering various configurable settings including enabling and disabling the entire framework, authentication, and operational frequencies. PowerSchool supports multiple LEAs in a single instance. The setup page contains a section where the individual authentication keys and secrets are entered for each LEA through the Configure hyperlink.
Refer to Configure PowerSchool Data Exchange.
The Ed-Fi Dashboard profile links are located on the main menu, under the Data Exchange heading. Links to the Ed-Fi Dashboards display if the DEX plugin is enabled and the Ed-Fi profile setup is complete.
Refer to Ed-Fi Dashboard.
The next step in the setup process is to download state-provided data.
