In order for Career Central to function correctly, we need to get data from your school management system.
Some schools use KAMAR for authenticating students, and others don’t. These instructions will still apply to both types of setups, however, if you do not use KAMAR for authentication then we will need to do additional setup steps.
Part 1 – KAMAR Setup
Career Central Support will send you an authentication code. Have this handy as you will need it later.
Login to KAMAR with administrative privileges. Go to
Main Menu ⇒ Setup ⇒ KAMAR ⇒ Server ⇒ Directory Services
Create a ‘New’ Service and select the ‘Other’ option.
Create a ‘New’ Service and select the other option.
Fill out the fields:
Name: Career Central Schools: Tick the school number your school uses (normally 1) Address: careercentral-kamar.appspot.com Use SSL: Tick Data Format: XML Username: Leave Blank Authentication: Enter the code from Step 1 here. Include Passwords: Tick this box. Include NSN: Untick this box. Enabled: Tick (do this last or you will get an error)
Press check to make sure the connection is working. If successful, you can then press the ‘Update’ button to complete your first full sync of all staff / students to Career Central.
Part 2 – KAMAR Web Setup
In order for Career Central to get additional data from KAMAR, which is not available from the Listening Service, we need the following.
Login to KAMAR Web (i.e your parent portal web address) – for example: http://parents.schoolname.nz/configure/index.php/login/
