The Nexus learning integration will allow you to generate three extracts that can sent directly to your own SFTP server that can then be picked up by Nexus's SFTP client. The extract will create and update employee details in Nexus.
1. First you'll need to create an API key in your People system that has access to all employee endpoints, Get all employee detail and Get employee by Id. You can learn how to create an API key here.
2. Copy the API key to your clipboard as you'll need to paste in a few moments.
3. Now you have your API key, click on the 'Plugins' tab:
4. Select the tab 'New Requests'
5. Select the 'Nexus Learning Extract' - you will then be presented with this screen:
6. Paste your API key in the first field.
7. FrameworkId - Please enter the frameworkId you wish to be populate under column C of the Nexus organisation template.
Below settings are taken from SFTP export guide:
8. Host name - Enter the hostname or IP address of the SFTP server
9. Host Location - The Path where you want the queries to be exported to (We would recommend including a forward slash into front of the path for example /C:/Queries)
10. User - The username of an Admin on that server
11. Password - Password of the Admin user
12. Private key - If you do not wish to pass the username and password for the admin user of SFTP server, you can provide the SSH/private key as a file.
This can be selected under the private key setting, if the key includes a passphrase this would then be supplied under the password file.
13. Port - The port open for SFTP (Defaults to 22)
14. Live Run - If this option is not selected the extracts will not be sent over SFTP and will only be available under the download option. (Please be aware once selected for the first time the Nexus integration will only generate changes based on the last Live run and it will not populate all employee data on each request)
15. Review the information you have entered before clicking 'Submit'.
