Hi,   Recently we are facing some issues with the Attempts API. In particular, we the API allows to create a new column not associated with any course content (actually, the "contentId" field is ready only), using the /api/public/v2/courses/{courseId}/gradebook/columns endpoint, but for some reason (well, due to an internal validation), we get… (Show more)

It would extremely useful in order to integrate with other institutional image sources to be able of making post and patch requests with the user's avatar image. Now, if the institution wants to have control over the user avatar they has to use a cumbersome process to generate a complex folder structure using the internal user id and upload it…

When you create a new gradable LTI content and you mark it as a gradable item, it creates a new Gradebook column. This gradebook column is not accessible from the LTI Advantage tool provider using the Assignments and Grades Services, because it's been created by Learn, not the tool, which is sandboxed.   We can access this column using the REST… (Show more)

We would like to be able to create HTML Objects in the Blackboard CMS via the REST API.  We are able to copy HTML files directly to the CMS via WebDAV, but these end up being HTML files, not HTML Objects.  Because they are not HTML Objects, we cannot create HTML Object links inside the Content Items in order for the content to be in-lined in the… (Show more)

It would be really helpful to have the UUID and other user identifier fields returned in the courses/:id/users endpoint. This would better align the data being passed from LTI (uuid for the user_id) to build tighter LTI plus REST API integrations.  Today we'd have to make the courses/:id/users call to gather the roster and then make individual…

Would be great for external applications getting groups set up for a particular task. Groups already return parent_id, but we can't get details about the Group Set itself making it difficult to distinguish the target Group Set from any others that already exist.
