CE.001.5 Run SEVIS Export Process (Project Archive)

User Acceptance Test Overview

The Export SEVIS Events process generates an XML file formatted according to SEVIS standards that contains data for students who were marked as Send to SEVIS on the Select Alerts page. The output file then must be downloaded to the user’s computer for use in the SEVIS batch interface outside of PeopleSoft.  

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.
