    Please note that you need access to Provisioning in order to create this job. In case you are working with a partner, they should be able to follow this steps and create the job on your behalf.

    In Provisioning, go to Manage Scheduled Jobs, and folow the steps:

    1. Select ‘Create new job’
    2. Job Owner: Enter an admin user.
    3. Job Type: Competency Library export
    4. Job Parameters: Always select the Export GUID option, plus the library you want to export.

    Note that only one library can be exported at a time. In case you want to export multiple libraries, you can schedule different competency export jobs to run on different days, exporting files with the same name, so that they can all be consumed by the connector.

    After setting the parameters, add the SFTP Details as well as file name and path, then click the Test Connection and Test File Put Permission. If both are successful, then the SFTP details should be correct.

    Once date and time have been added, you can create the job, and wait for it to run.
