We are looking to do some custom work that would pull student images from our ID card system and import them into profiles automatically. We do have a way to match on SIS ID value as it matches the ID in the card system. I am curious to know if anyone has accomplished this task already and might have a starting point? Many thanks in advance.

There are a few sample python scripts in Github for doing this.

canvas-contrib/API_Examples/bulk_assign_avatars at master · GitHub

One of the scripts set the image to an external URL. The other actually uploads the image to Canvas.
