Create CSV files
You create comma-separated values (CSV) files from your school information system. Google School Directory Sync (SDS) then synchronizes the CSV files with Classroom and G Suite for Education.
CSV file format
You name and format the files according to IMS OneRosterTM v1.0 specifications. You must keep all the files in the same directory as SDS.
The OneRoster standard includes 7 files, but only 5 are required for School Directory Sync.
|File||Required for School Directory Sync?|
|academicSessions.csv||No (will be ignored if included)|
|demographics.csv||No (will be ignored if included)|
Note: The files must have these exact names for SDS to import them.
When you configure the settings in Configuration Manager, you’ll enter a link from the CSV files to SDS.
Number of users—Confirm you're importing the correct number of users. If you import more users than you have G Suite for Education licenses for, you might get errors during synchronization. For details, see Licences.
