CERS Student Groups - Add API Functionality to Scheduled Import
Now that the Scheduled Process is working, please enable the extracts to be sent directly to TOMS via the API feature.
The API integration between the CERS Student Groups extract in Aeries and the CERS system is not available in Aeries yet, but we wanted to give you more information about where we are in the development process.
We are testing the CERS API upload with two specific districts to test on their live data. We need to perform this two-step acceptance testing because we do not have a test site in the CERS system to test the upload, it must be tested on live data. Currently we are working through an issue with the files not uploading to CERS. Once the BETA testing districts let us know that the API is successfully adding/updating the student groups in the CERS system we will be able to release the update to all of our customers.
In the meantime please continue to use the scheduled process to automatically create the files and then manually upload them into CERS.
The ticket response said it should have some updates around Jan-Feb, 2023.
Can anyone on this project update us a timeline and expectations? Thank you!

Hello, any update yet?

@Sylvia - is there an option to get added as one of your beta districts to test this out? Del Norte would be happy to take part if you need more testers with the API.

Waiting for update. Very time consuming to do it manually.
Jessica Kempker commented
Do we have an update on this?
Wendi Rapp commented
Is the API function working for this now?

@Kathy Kelly, the CAASPP website says that the CERS groups will automatically transfer directly from Aeries to CERS. Is that true? If so, what do we have to do to have that feature enabled?
I sent a help ticket last week and I was told that the I would need to manually upload the CERS extract file. I'm reading the note above that is dated 12/2/21 and it states that the Scheduled process is working and we can enable the extracts to be sent directly to TOMS via the API feature. Did I miss an update?
