API Endpoint to Query SIS ID?

Question asked by John Hui on Sep 18, 2016

We're trying to write some scripts to automatically pull down the class roster from Canvas and create VM user accounts for them based on their SIS information (we're a team of TAs and we don't necessarily have direct access to our SIS database nor the best support from our IT dept...). At the moment we're depending on unreliably generated gradesheets with fickle schema that we need to manually pull from our Canvas web interface every time we want to update our "database" of Canvas ID <=> SIS User ID information.

 

Is there any Canvas API endpoint that exposes the SIS User ID either as a query or result parameter, individually or in bulk, that we can reliably use?

 

Thanks!
