On Friday, April 21, changes will be made to PittSFTP giving users more time to review, adjust content, and when necessary, re-submit Accounts Payable (AP) and General Ledger (GL) files with corrected data before being imported into PRISM for processing. AP and GL files put in PittSFTP directories will remain there until 15 minutes before the respective PRISM import job is scheduled to run. At those times, AP and GL files will be pulled into PRISM for import and processing and no longer be visible. These changes will apply to AP and GL data file types only. All other data file types will continue to be synchronized every 5 minutes.
- GL files will be pulled from PittSFTP for import and processing every Monday through Friday at 7:15 a.m., 10:45 a.m., and 2:15 p.m. PRISM GL import jobs will continue to run at 7:30 a.m., 11 a.m., and 2:30 p.m.
- AP files will be pulled from PittSFTP for import and processing every Monday through Friday at 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. PRISM AP import jobs will continue to run at 7:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
As part of the December 2022 upgrade, PittSFTP became the new server used for importing data into PRISM, the University’s enterprise financial system.
Please take note of the following:
- Files should be placed in the root of your PittSFTP directory.
- A copy of each file pulled to PRISM for import and processing will be put into the /processed folder in your PittSFTP directory and appended with “.pulled_for_processing.”
