SuccessFactors Learning Connectors allow Administrators to automate importing data into the SF Learning application. Data can be provided directly by the customer, come from an integrated source e.g. Bizx Platform or a 3rd party provider e.g. Skillsoft connector. Structured TXT and CSV input files, uploaded to a dedicated SFTP location, are used as data vehicle. The system uses the information supplied in the CONNECTORS configuration (System Admin>Configuration>System Configuration) and the connectors settings (System Admin>Configuration>Connectors) allow the Administrator to automate the execution process.
