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.

 

Important Information

 

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.

 

Known Issues

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.

 

  • Class section numbers are not returned consistently across the Class and Enrollment API - revision will clarify use of Class number, Section Number and various display formats

  • Class Meeting Information is being reworked into a better structure to better present classes with multiple meetings or meeting patterns.
