    Integration recipe for Flat file integration

    • Determine if you need approval from the instructor for columns created from SIS, other specific columns, or all columns.
    • If your institution uses provisioning, determine linking strategy for extracted columns. If the column name is not sufficient, the optional data can be used to pass in and echo back linking keys. Determine if you want to link the created column to the existing letter or custom grade schema (Note: Another file format exists for creating grade schemas if needed).
    • Develop programs to generate and pass provisioning files and consume extracted grade files.
    • If you need to lock the gradebook, enable Lock on approval? in Grade Approval and Transfer Settings.
