The Admin App provides a Web front-end to common administrative tasks for managing the ODS and API. In general, the Admin App and solution provides access to functionality specific to Ed-Fi ODS and API management, and does not duplicate functionality provided through existing platform tools.
Please note that some functionality of the Admin App may vary by platform, due to differences in underlying platform services. These variations are noted below.
Please also note that some ODS administration functionality (e.g. database backups, direct database access or editing, inspection of logs, etc.) may require using platform tools or other Microsoft tools (e.g. SQL Server Management Studio).
The ODS / API Admin App is currently distributed with the Ed-Fi ODS / API Deployment Tools for Azure and Ed-Fi ODS/API on AWS solutions, available on the Ed-Fi Exchange). We anticipate that this utility will be integrated into the core ODS / API code base as part of the ODS / API v3.1 release.
The Admin App has three main areas, which will appear on first logging in:
Settings: this area holds common administrative functionality
Reports: this area provides reports on system activity (please note that these reports are NOT intended to provide for business analytics functionality)
Updates: provides information on solution versioning and functionality related to updating the solution
