CE.001.6 Import SEVIS Results (Project Archive)

User Acceptance Test Overview

After a SEVIS batch report has been uploaded into the SEVIS system and processed, a transaction log file must be retrieved and imported back into PeopleSoft to ensure the two systems are in sync. The transaction log file will contain the statuses of any updates in the batch (success or failure) and the SEVIS ID of any new individuals created.     

The information below is intended to provide colleges guidance on performing a User Acceptance Test on this business process. The business process shown in the flow diagrams below may be only part of what is needed to complete an end-to-end test of a full business cycle. Coordination with other colleagues at your college in advance of commencing testing is key to success. In the same way that it doesn't take a single individual to operate the business of running a college it will require coordination across departments to successfully test a business flow from beginning to end.
