Video Overview ~ ISIR Corrections Configuration




Step by Step Guide

This guide will walk you through setting up ISIR corrections in CL Connect.


The ISIR Corrections Batch Process is an automated job that can be configured to run in CL Connect. This process will batch all students in StudentForms who are in the ISIR Corrections queue (Admin > ISIR Corrections) into a single text file (per award year) and export that file to a location specified in the CL Connect configuration once per day. 



To set this configuration up in CL Connect, do the following: 


1. From the CL Connect home page, select the Clicking Here... link next to #1 Setup CL Connect.




2. From the Initial Setup page, select the ISIR Batch Corrections option from the list on the right and either click through to that configuration page using the Continue button or you can select ISIR Corrections from the menu on the left.




3. From the ISIR Batch Corrections page, fill in the following information:



*Days to Run: The days of the week this process will run. This configuration defaults to all seven weekdays. You can simply click the X icon to remove and click into the field to add days that are missing. 


*Time to Run: The time of day this process will execute. It does default to 12:00 AM and this is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) time. Please adjust this to meet your business needs. 


*File Extension: The extension for the batch file. Options include txt and dat. Default is txt.


*Corrections File Path: This is the location that CL Connect will export these files to. This supports both local server paths as well as network paths (UNC). 


All import and export file paths in CL Connect related to StudentForms configurations, must be unique. 


File Name: The name of the file. The default value will be AwardYearInteger_UniqueGUID.txt if no name is specified. (ex. "1_4685e2c6-c9f8-45a0-95b5-9b23e12a7f32.txt").

  • Available tokens:
    • {{AYLong}}
    • {{AYShort}}
    • {{AYStart}}
    • {{AYEnd}}
    • {{MM-dd-yyyy}}
    • {{MM-dd-yy}}
    • {{MM-dd-yyyy-HH-mm-ss}}


TDClient Integration Enabled: Toggles on/off the TDClient integration configuration options. (see below)


If you set the "TDClient Integration Enabled" option to True, please continue below. If you set this to False, you can skip the following section and pick back up at Step 4.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The TDClient integration is optional. This integration allows you to fully automate the ISIR Corrections process by allowing CL Connect to submit the ISIR correction files to CPS on your institutions behalf by using your TG credentials through TDClient. 


NOTE: TDClient is not an application owned by CampusLogic. Our Integration Management team has experience with TDClient but we are not the experts of this software. This software was created and is managed and provided by the U.S. Department of Education.

Please see the bottom of this article for a link to the Knowledge Center on the Federal Student Aid website.


This does require an instance of TDClient to be installed on the same server as CL Connect. This will be an additional instance for your institution to manage but again, will allow full automation of this process.


The following information is required in CL Connect:



TDClient Executable Path: The location of the "tdclientc.exe" file.


Archive File Path: This is the location CL Connect will use to export the ISIR correction files once they've been sent to TDClient. This cannot be the same path as the "Corrections File Path" above.


TDClient secfile Folder/Relative Path: The location of the "SECFILE" TDClient uses to write the header/footer records. 


The FSA website no longer provides this file. If you have an existing instance of TDClient at your institution, you can simply copy that over to this new instance. It can usually be found in the "TDClient" root folder or in the "Maint" folder inside the "TDClient" root folder.


Name of Transfer: This is sent as part of the TDClient transfer command. From what we understand, this is listed directly in the SAIG website as the name of the transfer. Please use this to distinguish where your ISIR transfers are being submitted from. 


SAIG mailbox User ID: This is the TG username assigned to your institution.
