August 11, 2016: Integration Announcement

Hello Campus Application Developers,


Here is the SIS Integrations team weekly summary of items of interest to our integration partners.

System Outage: Sunday, August 14,  from 5:30 a.m. - 11 a.m.

This Sunday, August 14, SIS Project GoLive 6.0d will be released to production.  This release includes enhancements and bug fixes to several existing APIs and the EDO DB.


As part of the work required, there will be a system outage from 5:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m on Sunday 8/14. During this time, all production versions of the SIS APIs will be unavailable.  Once the system comes back up, you can expect normal operations.

Campus No Fly Zone - 8/15 - 9/4

Beginning Monday, 8/15, the campus is implementing the customary three week freeze on production changes that may impact UC Berkeley Student Systems - traditionally called the “no fly zone”.  During this time the SIS Integrations team will not deploy any code changes to Production.  Please continue to let us know about bugs or issues with the APIs but we will need to wait to deploy until GL 6.0k on Thursday, 9/8/16 unless they are blockers and are approved by the Change Request Board.
