api/v1/accounts/1/sis_imports does not seem to obey stickyness for users

Jump to solution

Each time use api/v1/accounts/1/sis_imports with different first_name and last_name, the corresponding record is updated, but Override UI option is not selected.

Is this expected?

The "Override UI" option allows you to override changes to data that is sticky which have been made in Canvas since the last import of data. Some data that is imported by a SIS Import can become sticky when it's edited in Canvas and by default a newer SIS Imports don't override those changes.

The fields that are sticky are outlined in: https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/file.sis_csv.html

There is some more detail on overriding stickyness on imports at: https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/sis_imports.html
