Running the application

You can run the PureConnect Data Extractor application either manually or automatically.

Manually

To run the PureConnect Data Extractor application manually:

  1. Log in to the PureConnect server as a Windows administrator.
  2. Open a Command Prompt.
  3. Change directory to the folder containing the PureConnect Data Extractor application file, for example, C:\apps.PureConnectData.
  4. Run GSKM.Apps.PureConnectData.exe.
  5. You will be prompted to enter the following values:
    • The name of the PureConnect server.
    • The username and the password of the PureConnect administrator.
  6. If the credentials are correct, the PureConnect Data Extractor application will run and display appropriate messages regarding the progress. When the user data extraction is complete, you will see the message: Org Data Job extraction completed, press any key to exit.
Important
Do not press any key while the application is running; doing so will terminate the application and the entire process. If you pressed any key by mistake, simply re-run the application.

On successful data extraction from the PureConnect server, a CSV file with the name Org Data extractor_yyyymmddhhMMss.csv is created in the same folder (for example, C:\Apps.PureConnectData), where yyyymmddhhMMss is the current date and timestamp.

In addition, a log file is created in a Logs sub-folder (for example, C:\Apps.PureConnectData\logs), and temporary files are created in a sub-folder of the working folder (for example, C:\DataExtractor\41D36104-7B1B-4274-9518-B50A0F999B20).

Automatically

To run the PureConnect Data Extractor application automatically, you must pass the filename of job.config as an argument to the GSKM.Apps.PureConnectData.exe application. This will automatically provide the previously supplied parameters that are necessary to run a scheduled task.

Important
The job.config file is created in the same folder (for example, C:\Apps.PureConnectData) at the end of running the PureConnect Data Extractor application manually. The appSettings in this config file are stored in an encrypted format for security reasons.
