Hi there   What's the best way to handle Request table data in Redshist? It keeps growing and adding new cluster to Redshift is not the appropriate option as we deal with lots of universities partners and keep recieving more and more files.   Does anyone have any better solution with this?   Thanks Harshal.

Hi all,   I'm tearing my hair out with this one - hopefully there is a simple fix that I'm missing.   I have a Postgres DB into which I am loading selected flat files (there is a wonderful bash script that someone shared that is doing the business).   I am experiencing a problem trying to import submission_dim.txt    The import process was… (Show more)

I'm looking to configure a data stream to receive notifications for when a student submits an assignment.  I'd like to configure this using HTTPS rather than go through setting up SQS and was wondering if anyone has had any success doing this?   I've created a new webservice to receive the notifications and have tested this using Postman so that… (Show more)

I was wondering what the status of Live Events is.   I have an LTI tool and I would like to use live events to get "pushed" individual data changes instead of using the API to "pull" ALL data on every page load. Our LTI is a dashboard that pulls in a lot of data, so it leads to long page loads.   Is it possible for an LTI to subscribe to data… (Show more)

Our institution is wanting to take a look at Canvas Data to see what kind of information we can pull out of it. I have looked around the Canvas community quite a bit to learn more about the data portal and what it offers. I have seen how to download and sync data with the Canvas CLI tool, and it seems straightforward. I do have a few questions… (Show more)
