Frog3 - SIMS Extractor Installation
Posted by on 01 August 2017 11:50 AM

The Frog SIMS extractor is a utility that a school will install either on their SIMS server or any machine that has the SIMS client installed on it. It allows you to extract data from SIMS and send that data to your Frogserver for import. 

The current version of the Frog SIMS extractor is 2.9.18 and has been designed to work with SIMS version 7.144 and above. Please note that if your SIMS version changes (due to an upgrade for example) you may need to update the SIMS extractor - please check with Frog Technical support if you are unsure.

You can normally open your SIMS Extractor configuration page by visiting the following location from the start button on your taskbar:

You will see that three options have been installed, these are:

  • Configuration – This is a utility to configure the data to be extracted and set up the information to allow the extractor to log into SIMS.Net.
  • Run Manual Import – This option begins a manual run of the Frog SIMS Extractor which pulls data from SIMS and places it into an XML file on your Frog Server.
  • Run Assessment Import – This option begins the extract of assessment data from SIMS. 

The installation is now complete. Next you have to configure the extractor correctly to ensure you have access to your SIM data.
