Retrieving Own SIS ID from Users API Call As Teacher

Hello,

 

On my Account, I have the setting "Read SIS data" checked for Teachers.

However, when I "become" a Teacher, and execute an API call to the Users API, I am not able to see my own SIS ID.

 

For example, when I call to: https://xxxxx.instructure.com/api/v1/users/self I get:

{"id":4265906,"name":"NAME","sortable_name":"NAME","short_name":"NAME","avatar_url":"url","locale":null,"permissions":{"can_update_name":false,"can_update_avatar":true}}

 

If I add /profile on to the end of that URL, I get a few more fields. For example, `integration_id`, `primary_email`, and `login_id`. But still no SIS ID.

 

Is this by design? Is there any way to give a Teacher permission to see their own SIS ID without giving them admin permissions?


Thank you very much.
