I am setting up many assignments across many different courses.
So I have downloaded the 'Postman' API tool to help with this process.
I have set up my authorisation token and used a GET to display basic course data from our Canvas build to test the connection - which was a success.
I then used POST and created a test assignment in one of our courses using the following JSON code:
"name": "Test assessment 1",
Which was also a success - so far all good.
As we have quite a few courses each with many different assignments each with different settings such as the 'points_possible', 'due_at' etc.. so I started a spreadsheet and populated it with the headings of 'name','points_possible','due_at','published','submission_type','description' I then set this up in JSON format using CSV To JSON Converter but there are a few different variations of JSON formatting and none have worked. e.g JSON column array or keyed JSON...
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can transfer this spreadsheet across to postman and through using the canvas API start adding assignments to our multiple online courses?
