Observer To Students

Jump to solution

What is the foreign key or cross table in the Canvas Data Schema to link an observer to their student?

I can't seem to find that anywhere in Canvas Data and I need to pull students and their observers to build an official transcript report

Just looking to close this thread as we addressed this question with the information below:

Hi Michael,

Thank you for contacting Canvas Data Support! When looking through the schema myself, you are correct that there is currently no way to determine the observer to observee relationship. I have submitted a feature request to the data team and attached this ticket to it so that you will be notified when there are any updates.

I believe this is an important gap that needs to be filled in Canvas Data as the observer feature is used by many schools. In the mean time, I can see that this information can be gathered through the API (https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/user_observees.html).

Please let me know if you have any questions in the mean time.

Thank you,

Sydney McCann
