Run reports and get data via API

Jump to solution

Hi - Does anyone know of a way to run Canvas Provisioning report through API, and/or get the enrollments data from Canvas to a csv or database?

We want to send enrollment data to a third party vendor, and we are doing that from our SIS today, but we run into an issue when a professor merges courses and the enrollment doesn't match in that third party tool. We are thinking if we'll make Canvas are data source, then that should solve that problem.

Has anyone else run into something like this? Or, used any automated way to run reports and/or get enrollments data from Canvas?

Thank you!!

Hi Chandni,

You can definitely use the Account Reports API to generate the provisioning reports via script.  There are a couple of folks who have shared python scripts to do this, and some discussion at
