APIs

To access Catalog API documentation, add /api/docs at the end of your Catalog URL.

 

Courses API

When creating and updating courses, users can access and modify the value of the list_order field on each listing.

 

Enrollments API

When getting a specific enrollment, users can fetch the status of an enrollment using the status parameter.

 

Wait List API

Users can view the full list of applicants on a listing’s wait list using the Waitlist Applicants API.

 

Users can also fetch courses or programs via the Courses and Programs APIs using the course[waitlist] parameter. The course[waitlist] parameter controls whether the wait list is turned on or off; we have included this parameter in the show and index responses. Additionally, the parameter is whitelisted for modifications in creating and updating courses and programs.


In the Courses API, when updating the enrollment cap using the course[enrollment_cap] parameter, the changes automatically apply to the wait list.
