Setting up an SFTP connection allows you to transfer rostering files directly to Imagine Learning's Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) server. Imagine Learning supports the OneRoster® 1.1 format, Traditional rostering format for Literacy and Math, and other file formats (as directed by Imagine Learning).
Before you begin
You should have received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org containing a link for you to set up your own personal, private password. If you did not receive an email, please contact your Imagine Learning Technical Systems Engineer so that they can send you an access email.
You must reset your password before you can log in to sftp.imaginelearning.com for the first time and connect to the Imagine Learning SFTP server.
If you need to use a different email address, please contact your Imagine Learning Technical Systems Engineer so that they can send access to the email address you specify.
To set up an SFTP connection for rostering
- Go to sftp.imaginelearning.com.
- Log in using your username (the email address that you provided to the Imagine Learning Experience Operations team), and password.
Remember, you must reset your password before you can log in for the first time.
- Once you are logged in, set up file sharing with the following settings:
Setting Description IP Address or Hostname sftp.imaginelearning.com Upload Path
imagine/<site code>-<name of your district>/product
For example: imagine/1234567-districtname/product
Depending on your operating system, you may need to escape the entire string in double quotes to avoid any issues that arise from the path containing spaces.

If you need to reset your password, go to sftp.imaginelearning.com.
SFTP Enabled Date and Time
Specify the date and time that you want to transfer files.
Imagine Learning recommends that you transfer your files nightly, prior to 3 am Mountain Daylight Time.
- OneRoster® 1.1 files (for more information, see Setting up a OneRoster® file transfer)
- Traditional rostering files for Literacy
- Traditional rostering files for Math
- Other file formats (as directed by Imagine Learning)
Ensure that the files you upload match the OneRoster or traditional rostering file specifications.
Please keep in mind that the name of the file you upload should always stay the same. For example, if the file you uploaded was named OneRoster.zip, that filename should never change in any subsequent uploads.
