IPSIS Administration is an interface in Brightspace used for configuring and reviewing the status of SIS integrations with Brightspace. Once you set up an integration in IPSIS Administration, a dashboard for that integration becomes available for you to process jobs, view log messages, review the audit log, make changes the configuration of the integration, migrate from an existing SIS integration, and update the user sourced Id. From IPSIS Administration, you can access the D2L Standard CSV dashboard.
Note: To access the IPSIS Administration interface, the Access IPSIS Administration Console permission is required.
To access the D2L Standard CSV dashboard
- From the Admin Tools menu, click IPSIS Administration.
- Click D2L Standard CSV or the custom name of the integration.

- Click the Dashboard tab, and do any of the following:
- Drag-and-drop (or browse to find) a compatible zip file onto the specified area to trigger an ad-hoc batch run.
- View a summary of the latest D2L Standard CSV batch (and the ability to re-run the batch to assist with troubleshooting).
- View links to audit and error messages logs for the latest D2L Standard CSV run.
Note: To schedule processing jobs, click the Configuration tab and set up an SFTP location to drop compatible zip files for processing. Once SFTP is enabled, the D2L Standard CSV integration checks the associated SFTP account every 10 minutes and automatically processes anything it finds. Automated processing should only be leveraged if differentials are being sent. Do not send fulls during business hours due to lengthy processing times which can impact the performance of your Brightspace instance.
