NC4 - E Team - R9.8 Configuration Documents - ETeam-to-ETeam Data Sharing Configuration

E Team Data Sharing gives an E Team user the ability to share reports with other E Team user organization(s). By adding other E Team user organizations to your Data Sharing configuration, you can send reports to all or selected organizations, and allow forwarding of these reports on a case-by-case basis. This interoperability is part of the core functionality of E Team and enables E Team users to share critical data in real time with other E Team systems at all levels of government and in the private sector. 

How Data Sharing Works

E Team Data Sharing is consistent throughout the application. Each report that utilizes this functionality will have a labeled Data Sharing.

In the Data Sharing section, E Team users will see the following fields.

  • Share Document: Choosing Yes allows the report to be shared.
  • Select Recipients: Choosing Select displays a list of Organizations that have been configured for Data Sharing.
  • Assign Control to: This option allows your E Team users to assign EDIT RIGHTS to another Organization that has been configured for Data Sharing. When control is assigned to another Data Sharing organization, THE USER ASSIGNING CONTROL GIVES UP HIS/HER OWN EDIT RIGHTS. The default for this field is “Retain Control,” which provides read-only access to users in the organizations with which the report was shared, and enables the originating organization to continue to modify the report as necessary.
  • Allow Forwarding: When control of a report is assigned to another Organization that has been configured for Data Sharing, your E Team users can also choose whether to allow that Organization to forward the report to another Organization with which it shares data. If control is assigned and forwarding is allowed, the organization(s) with which the report was shared may also allow forwarding. If you select NO under Allow Forwarding, the only option the Organization to whom the report has been forwarded has is to return the report to your Organization after editing.
  • Comment: This field is used to allow users to add any information pertaining to the data sharing of this report.

Once the E Team user submits the report, the report is marked with the Data Sharing information the user has selected and the data is transmitted.

An E Team Administrator can view data Sharing Status by accessing the Data Sharing Queue view.

Data Sharing Planning

The ability to share data between E Team systems requires close coordination with other E Team user organization Administrators. Each Administrator must provide information to the other in order for Data Sharing to work properly. Both E Team systems MUST be configured properly for Data Sharing to work. The following information must be shared:

  • User IDs
  • User Passwords
  • Remote Server IP and Port

Data Sharing Configuration Document

You must create a separate document for each data sharing partner.

  1. Click on the Data Sharing Configuration option under Administration from the menu. The system displays the Data Sharing Configuration view in the View Frame.
  2. Click on the Create button. The system displays the Data Sharing Configuration document in update mode.
  3. Enter the required information. When you are finished, click on Submit to save and close the document.

  2. Remote System Name: This is your data sharing partner’s Local System Name as used on the Data sharing Configuration he is setting up to data share with you. This information must be obtained from the E Team Administrator of the Organization with which you are going to share data.
  3. Remote User ID: This is the Local User ID of the remote system as used on the Data sharing Configuration he is setting up to data share with you. This information must be obtained from the E Team Administrator of the Organization with which you are going to share data.

Report level access control is consistent throughout E Team and is set on each report instance using the fields in the Access Control section of the forms.
