I'm using this Docker image to do some LTI related development. I'm trying to bulk upload data for test purposes, but have been unable to find a way to turn on SIS Imports. I found this article which states that we need a Customer Success Manager to enable this feature. How do I import SIS data to a Canvas account?
SIS Imports must be enabled by your Customer Success Manager before files can be uploaded to your account.
Is the SIS Import feature only available to 'hosted' instances of Canvas, or can this otherwise be enabled on a vanilla customer hosted installation?
As far as I am aware, the ability to do SIS Imports is only available in the paid version of Canvas. That is why it references the need to contact a CSM. You may try opening a ticket with Instructure Support from Help > Report a Problem to ask if you can enable it somehow.
I have a Bitnami image running locally and it has SIS Import. So its not particular to Instructure hosted Canvas. It might be that Instructure disable it in their hosting unless you ask to have it turned on.
