Class API

  • Modify displayName format
  • Enhance Class Section to provide real-time enrollment counts

Enrollment API

  • Correct JSON output for meeting and exam times

Top Issues Being Researched

  • Student API - we are investigating a report that cumulative units and cumulative GPA displayed in CalCentral do not match the output of the API.
  • Student API - we have confirmed a reported issue that completed, discontinued or otherwise inactive Plans are omitted from the Student EDO.   
    • Addressing this issue requires some redesign which is underway with the Registrar and SIS Student Records team.   An update to the Student API will follow to surface program/plan status and include recently completed programs/plans.
