SIMS 8 - January 2021 API Refresh

We are pleased to advise that we have released a number of new APIs for TI use.

Attendance V3 Service

This is now available for live usage.  Changes to the service from the Beta and earlier versions are detailed for TIs and require changes to formats / names of lookups should be noted.

Update to Pastoral Group Service

This service now adds:

  • Group Definitions
  • Group Memberships (including dated memberships)

The documentation has been updated.

Formal Documentation

This change is as a consequence of the need for a clean up and the confusion caused by a mixed list of APIs for our Power BI connector and TI APIs.

Click on Product:  You are offered two choices:

Click on the 3rd Party APIs to access formal documentation.  The list now includes only the TI APIs.

Schools Service V3 - Deprecation as of 1/9/2021

Please note that this information domain is obsolete and will be deprecated as of 1/9/2021.  Please use EducationalEstablishment which already contains Rooms which is the only remaining sub domain in schools.
