October 6, 2016: Integration Announcement

Hello Campus Application Developers,

 

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

Change in Upcoming SIS Release Schedule

The dates for Go Lives 7.1 and 7.2 have changed. See the new dates below. Alpha releases will continue twice a week as needed.  

 
  • GL 7.1 - Sunday, 10/9/16  - moved to Sunday, 10/16/16

  • GL 7.2 - Sunday, 10/30/16 - moved to Sunday 11/6/16

Release Notes

Here is what is planned for upcoming alpha releases.

 

GL 7.0f - Friday, 10/7

 

Class API

  • fix bug for missing Assigned Instructors in Class Section

EDODB Changes

These changes have been implemented in Production as of 10/5/16.

  • fixed a discrepancy in cumGPA and cumUnits

  • fixed a discrepancy in total units in Student and Registration views  

  • fixed a bug for academic status and current registration

  • enhanced Enrollment API to drop “W grade” enrollments

  • fixed a bug for display of Gender of Record

Upcoming Changes

  • Student API currently only returns current plan and registration information. Requirements have been articulated to include future plans (such as when a student declares a major or is transitioning from undergrad to grad careers) as well as recently completed plans (such as when a student graduates or withdraws.)

 

At GL7.1, the academic-status endpoint of the Student API will return all active plans (current and future) along with a date when these plans become effective.  In the event that a student does not have any active plan, the API will return the most recent inactive plan along with a status indicating completed, discontinued, etc.

This change is available in UAT for testing now.

Top Issues Being Researched

  • Student API - cumulative units and cumulative GPA displayed in CalCentral do not match the output of the API.  This was corrected in EDODB and a fix for the Student API is under development.
