What do all the placeholders in the DonorWise data source template mean?

Filed under: [Edit Tags]

DonorHub includes a template to support DonorWise.  Using this template, you simply need to fill out a few placeholders, and you're up and running quickly.  These are the placeholders:

                         

$SERVER_NAME$
$DATABASE_NAME$
$LOGIN$
$PASSWORD$

These four placeholder have to do with connecting to the DonorWise database.  They correspond exactly with what you see when you login to DonorWise.

                              

The login used could be a system administrator ("sa").  But for better security, it's better to create a special user in DonorWise, exclusively for the use of DonorHub Lite.  The user account created in DonorWise must be a member of the "Report Writer" role so that DonorHub Lite will have the read-only access it needs to pump in donation data.

               

$STAFF$
$DEPT$

Adding a value into these placeholders will cause staff ($STAFF$) or project/ministry ($DEPT$) designation category/ministry codes to be prefixed by what you put in.  Why would you want to do this?  You might want to give someone access to all staff designation accounts (a MPD support coach, for example).  To give a profile of a Web User (from the "Manage Web Users" screen) access to all staff designation accounts, you could enter a value into the $STAFF$ placeholder, and then on the "Manage Web Users" screen, on the appropriate Web User / Profile, you could add a designation by specifying "(All Accounts)" and then entering the prefix you added to the $STAFF$ placeholder.

                                    

$ANONYMOUS_MOTIVATION_CODE$

If a motivation code is entered here, it will cause all gifts associated with it to appear anonymous to the staff.
