June 30, 2016: Integration Announcement

Hello Campus Application Developers,


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

Go Live 5.6 - Successful!

Go Live 5.6 went into Production on Sunday 6/26. See the Release Notes below for a summary of changes to SIS APIs.


API Usage Notes

Known Issues

  • Several SIS APIs provide a pagination feature to allow developers to work through a large set of results. Pagination was implemented differently in different APIs and we are working to bring consistency to the pagination method. We are refactoring the Enrollment API first and then will move on to Student, Course and introduce pagination for Class API. API Central will be updated with revised documentation as soon as these changes are released.
