Jenzabar SIS and Canvas data uploads

Jump to solution

I'd like to reopen this conversation.  We still do not have a working SIS data upload system due to issues related with the tables in our Jenzabar registration module and how that office is dropping students from courses (purging for non-payment, etc.) and then reinstating students.  The timestamping is not captured in a way that our script can read the newest, most accurate student enrollment data to upload into Canvas.  Does anyone use Jenzabar?  If so, could you become a consultant?

Hello.  Are you still looking for an answer to your question or have you been able to resolve this?  I am not interested in being a consultant but I can share with you how our Jenzabar SIS integrates with Canvas.

I think we finally have a very basic SIS upload to SFTP server process

working. We only create users, courses, and enrollments.

Hi Tom! 

If you could please share any tips on creating CSV files to export from Jenzabar and upload into Canvas, I would be grateful. We are having some issues with course ids and course sections related to cross-listed courses.

We would be interested in learning how you integrate between Jenzabar and Canvas.  We're using .csv sftp files and run into difficulties from time to time and would like to bounce best-practices and workflow logic around with others.

Thank you in advance!

We are also experiencing difficulty.  In our case, the csv export functionality to SFTP is now erratic after a recent upgrade. Unfortunately, the xml alternative produces a file with formatting that is incompatible with Canvas import requirements.

We discovered this when trying to solve the problem of having the SIS export lead to a student being converted to inactive status (rather than being deleted) from Canvas.  All grades and files associated with the user disappear and do not reappear upon reinstatement.  Still haven't solved that one.....

We are moving from Jenzabar ELearn to Canvas this year. We do not have the in-house knowledge to build out the sftp upload from scratch. Based on what I am finding in this post is that I am not alone in this quest. 

I would be extremely grateful if you would be willing to share your knowledge. I am also willing to hire someone as a consultant to set this up. I do have all the queries for the required data that needs to go to Canvas. I also would like to pull back mid-term and final grades into Jenzabar. 

Thank you.

Hello,

My name is Jeremiah Ellington I'm the systems administrator for Holy Names University and I would like to talk about how you are integrating Jenzabar and Canvas! Right now I'm running a custom integrating written in Python to move our current SIS ( Blackbaud on-prim ) course/enrollment information to Canvas via the SIS API flat file endpoint.

I will be working with Jenzabar very soon and would like to know much more about the processes you've worked out!

 

Thank you,
