ESS DeX aims to provide a centralised data exchange platform that reflects industry standards and best practice. The data available from the DeX interfaces transects the ESS product set exposing a unified set of data to authorised consumers in a cost-effective, legal and ethical way; empowering bidirectional data transfer where it is relevant to do so.
ESS Dex provides integrators with access to a subset of data drawn from SIMS 7 and SIMS 8 (SIMS Primary) keeping the Customer in control of their data and providing Integrators with a consistent single integration point irrespective of the original data source.
ESS DeX is a growing service. It currently provided access to data through two methods.
- ESS Data Exchange - OData based endpoints that exposes data from SIMS 7 and SIMS 8 data.
- SIMS ID Based APIS
- IMS Global One Roster data for students, staff, classes and memberships.
- Resource and Provisioning API - a RESTful API for provisioning users into third-party systems
