Can I use the API to post an assignment to a SECTION instead of an entire course?

I think I have an easy one!

 

I have an API integration that is currently working pretty well in Canvas.  Teachers can use my application to create a new assignment for their course and it posts to their instance of Canvas using

 

POST post /v1/courses/{course_id}/assignments

 

My application grades the assignments and passes the grades back to Canvas using the LTI outcome service.  All of this reduces teachers' workload quite nicely.

 

Is there a way to post an assignment to a SECTION instead of a course? Do I need to create an OVERRIDE to assign to a section to do this?

 

Thanks!
