The Visual Studio Solution for the Ed-Fi ODS / API consists of several “Startup Projects” that work together. Each of these projects needs to be running for the system to be fully functional.

To set the Startup Projects:

  1. Select the Set Startup Projects… context menu by right-clicking on the solution file in the Solution Explorer.


  2. Within the Startup Project property page, select the Multiple startup projects radio button and enable the following projects:
    • EdFi.Ods.Admin.Web
    • EdFi.Ods.SwaggerUI
    • EdFi.Ods.WebApi


The Upload and Bulk workers work in conjunction with the bulk load API. They monitor message queues containing instructions to asynchronously reassemble the uploaded file segments and process the assembled bulk data. If you will be performing bulk operations, you may choose to set the startup project action to Start for the following projects: 

    • EdFi.Ods.BulkLoad.Services.Windows.BulkWorker
    • EdFi.Ods.BulkLoad.Services.Windows.UploadWorker

Alternately, you can start these projects on demand after loading the files.

3.   Click the OK button to accept the changes to your local development settings.
