September 29, 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 7.0d - Friday, 9/30

 

Class API

  • add missing Instructor/Department Consent to Class Section

  • fix a bug in Class API - “ApiResponse” will now properly be “apiResponse”

 

Enrollment API

  • add missing “assignedInstructors” to API response

  • waitlisted enrollments will no longer be returned after the waitlist period ends (5th week of term)

 

Student API

  • enhanced the the International collection endpoint to support a term parameter

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 planned to be available in UAT for testing on Friday 9/30.

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.
