This article describes the steps needed to populate an Ed-Fi ODS with sample XML data, using the Console Bulk Loader. The steps can be summarized as:
Download the BulkConsoleLoaderScript.zip (to the right) and extract the contents of the ZIP file to a local folder (we recommend C:\Ed-Fi-SampleDataLoad). The ZIP file contains both scripts to initiate the Bulk Console Loader, as well as a copy of the Ed-Fi sample data XML with minor modifications.
The script will reset your EdFi-Ods-Empty and load all sample data in one script run. The process takes approximately 30 minutes.
If your local copy of EdFi.Ods.BulkLoad.Console is in a different location than the root of the drive, you can change the LoadEmptyDatabaseWithSampleData.ps1 script to adjust.
The script contains a parameter that defines the local path to the Ed-Fi-ODS-Implementation repository. This is set by default to "C:\Ed-Fi-ODS-Implementation" but can be changed to be appropriate for your environment.
The following link is a ZIP archive containing a PowerShell script and console bulk loader manifest files to assist with loading an Ed-Fi ODS using sample XML data.
