FILE-BASED LMS SUPPORT
RALS v6.0 SP8, introduced a file-based Learning Management System (LMS) feature that enables you to connect your RALS system data to any LMS, such as HealthStream, WorkDay, Saba-Cloud, or Cornerstone (Figure 1).
To update operator certifications from an LMS, we need the LMS to be able to provide RALS with a .csv file that contains a few specific fields (Table 1).
That file will be stored on the D: drive on the RALS system server and your RALS system will use it to update the operators’ device specific exam date.
Figure 1: RALS support for LMS integration is done by reading a .csv file stored by the LMS and retrieved from the RALS server. The process will be set to run automatically every day at a specified time of day RALS will update operator device certification exam dates based on the information received.
|Operator ID||Required - RALS Operator ID||Must be an operator ID that exists in the RALS system|
|Device Type Number||Required - Numeric identifier for the device type associated the operators certification||Must be a valid RALS system device type|
|Exam Date||Required - Date exam the LMS course was completed||Example formats:
18 Jan 2021
Table 1: The .csv file must contain the specific fields shown above.
- Must be able to extract a .csv file from your LMS
- Must be able to move the .csv file to the D:\LMS directory on the RALS server.
There is no cost to update your RALS system to Version 6.0 SP8 but there is one-time implementation fee to add the File-based LMS support to your RALS system.
