Below are known issues with information or workarounds for the Admin App for Ed-Fi Technical Suite Two and Three as supported by active ODS / API releases. This page will be updated as issues are found and resolved.
Can I use Admin App for my sandbox mode ODS / API instance?
No, Admin App supports shared, year-specific and district-specific modes only. Admin App does not support sandbox mode which is intended for development and the Sandbox Administration Portal is the tool to use for sandbox modes. Admin App cannot administer sandbox instances nor instances that started as sandboxes, then migrated to other modes.
An error message when synching learning standards that reads “### learning standards may not have synchronized…”
Ed-Fi is aware of an issue where all available standards from Academic Benchmarks may not fully load on the first try. If this occurs, you will get a similar error message to “### learning standards may not have synchronized…”. The technical issue is a sequencing of learning standards between parent and child related elements. We are working on a resolution to this issue for release in the fall. For the time being, to resolve this issue, repeat the loading of standards using Admin App until the error message goes away. While this is an edge case in our QA testing, we've found that 1–3 more tries typically resolves this issue when presented.
For any issues not identified here, as well as suggestions for improvements, please use the Ed-Fi Tracker to file an issue or bug report under the "EDFI" queue for development review and resolution.

- Create a new text file named
SetupRequiredand remove the file extension so it shows as “File” in file explorer. Note: this is only required for versions before Admin App 2.0.1. For Admin App versions 2.0+ you can skip this step.
Connect to the EdFi_Admin database on your SQL Server and remove old data created by the original run of setup. There might be a table in the sample below that doesn’t exist -- you can remove these lines if they show an error in SSMS. Note: please use Admin App version appropriate script
