Find sis-import ids for pending jobs

I'm new at canvas and wading through a lot of information.

As I am looking at our sis-imports, the past status logs we create on import, and the api for status, I am seeing a lot of missing import id numbers. I see that there is an abort_all_pending command. Is there a get_all_pending or list_all_pending or something similar? Or does anyone know of a way to find all of the pending sis-import job ids?

Thanks much!

For this type of technical question I'm going to share this with the‌ group in the Community. They are the ones who do a lot of things like this and should be able to help!

Hi Karin --

There isn't a way to filter the results of the SIS imports list API call by workflow_state, but pending imports should appear at the top of the results (if there are any imports in the pending state).  You should be able to read data from the SIS imports list call and stop when you get to an import with a workflow state that isn't 'pending'. Note that if there are a lot of pending imports (probably not a common occurrence), you may need to request multiple pages of results in order to fetch all of the pending imports.

Hope this helps!
