Field updates by bulk import

ULN bulk import validation rules and errors


The system checks the content of imported ULN files to ensure the data is correct and meets both format and business rules, such as:

  • the file contains all expected fields in the correct order
  • the file contains at least one record
  • the ULN is not blank
  • the ULN does not already exist

If a single record within a file fails format validation this will not cause the entire file to fail.

Once the system has successfully validated the file, it will update the learner’s application with the new ULN.

You can find more details of the file format validation rules in the Technical Proposal. This is part of the Technical Specifications for the Learning Provider Portal. If you need a copy, please email lpservices@slc.co.uk.
