May 19, 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 5.4 - Successful!
GoLive 5.4 went into production on Sunday, 5/15. See the Release Notes for Integration changes.
Course API will be unavailable on Saturday, 5/21 from 8-9:30 a.m.
Due to an Oracle server patch, the Course API which is sourced from the Course Management System (CMS), will be unavailable from 8-9:30 this Saturday, 5/21/16. During this time the SIS Course API on API Central will be unavailable.
SIS QAT will be unavailable on Monday, 5/23 from 3 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The SIS QAT Environment (BCSQAT) will be down until 2 p.m. on Monday 5/23/16 while we refresh Production data. All UAT APIs on API Central (using the Try it Out button) will be unavailable during this time. Production APIs will not be affected and remain active.
As we find issues affecting API users, we will list the top ones here to let you know we are working on fixes for near-term release.
