Has anyone used Scheduler to successfully load records to Ebsco EDS?
I am unclear what to put in the "Remote Directory" field.
Any advice?
Thanks very much for your time,
Laurie

We very recently purchased Scheduler to FTP records to EDS. We want to send a daily file of records updated the previous day, but cannot figure out how to formulate such a pattern in Create Lists without specifying the actual date. Has anyone figured out how to do it, perhaps using regex, or is everyone always FTP'ing a FULL replacement file?

Thanks,
Yael

Would it work to use this query: BIBLIOGRAPHIC DATE UPDATED is this many days ago "1" ?
If you do try it I would definitely do some checking of the resulting list against a manual list with a fixed date. We have seen some discrepancies in the number of records with this type of Scheduler task, but haven't been able to pin down the problems to the variable dates, or somehow the Scheduler process it'self.

We also have this working as Bruce describes (for a full record update , using multiple files, the first file goes in the full directory, and the rest go in update).

It's relatively new for us and we have had some problems here and there so I'm still trying to monitor the process to track them down.

Has anyone seen thier scheduler upload process truncate records from a file? Perhaps if it is too large? My example was something like 200,000 records missing from a file of over 1 million.

Thanks.

Hi Laurie,
Ebsco have always told us this was their procedure, regardless of whether you are doing a manual FTP or using Scheduler..
See https://help.ebsco.com/interfaces/EBSCO_Discovery_Service/EDS_Catalogs_IRs/Using_FTP_Create_and_Maintain_Records_EDS
It will be interesting however if your practice is working just fine!
Bruce.

Thanks for the documentation, Bruce. I was following instructions left to me by me predecessor and I have been doing it wrong for almost a year now -- but I guess it has been working?! No reports from either staff or Ebsco that it hasn't, and my spot checks for library materials have always come up okay. Thanks for setting me straight!

You may need to use ./Update if you are doing an update only.

Or if your full load is in several files, the files after the first one go into ./Update.

Hi Bruce,
We have our full load in several files and when I transfer the files manually, I put them all in the "Full" folder. Could you clarify for me why it would be different with scheduler?
Thanks very much for your time,
Laurie

Yes. I have just set this up so that the entire process is automated daily at 5 pm, so results are usually processed and posted by 8 am next day.

I use /full for the remote directory.
