Enrollment start and end dates

Hello to all,

          We have an integration between a system A and Canvas and we're obtaining the necessary information through Canvas APIs.

          This question is because we're having some troubles with enrollments start and end dates (start_at and end_at).


Using Enrollment by ID API to get all information for a specific enrollment id, we always get a null value for both fields: start_at and end_at as shown in the image below:

We were specting start_at and end_at would be populated with section dates, course dates or term dates (in that priority order) for each enrollment, but we found both fields with null values.

Could someone help me understand how this two fields work? When are they populated?


We need to use section start and end dates as enrollments start and end dates. We configured this two dates for a section and activated the "Users can only participate in the course between these dates" option. These tests were done in test and beta environments.


Thanks in advance.
