After you have prepared and formatted your data in the CSV files, configured the manifest.xml file, and packaged these files in a ZIP archive (i.e., a .zip file), you are ready to synchronize your data. The following instructions apply to ZipSync mode only.

It is recommended that you work with the included sample files before attempting to synchronize production data. For details, see Working with the ZipSync mode sample files.

To prepare run the utility in ZipSync mode:
  1. Install Java 7 (JDK or JRE).

    1. Linux: $JAVA_HOME/bin
    2. Windows: %JAVA_HOME%\bin
  3. Unzip the epic-client-5.5.124.zip file.
  4. On Linux, change the permissions of the epic-client-5.5.124/bin/epic shell script (e.g., chmod +x epic-client-5.5.124/bin/epic). This is not necessary on Windows.
