Developing for AzEDS
The SIS certification process ensures that each student information system (SIS) used by Arizona educational institutions can pass all required information to ADE via the AzEDS REST API. Certification is conducted at the SIS vendor level for a specific version of that vendor’s SIS.
Conducted over the course of several 3-4 hour sessions, the certification process tests the vendor system’s ability to pull and push data via the AzEDS REST API. Prior to the first certification session, we will send you information about the vendor test environment (REST API urls, API key and secret, etc.) plus basic parameters we will be using during the certification process, such as district, school, class periods, and term types. This will give you time to make sure you have access to the environment and perform any necessary setup in your SIS prior to the first session.
Feel free to test your access to this environment, but please restrict your REST API calls to GETs as we want to make sure our certification scenarios are not affected by pre-existing data. After the certification process is complete, your test database will be archived in case it is ever needed for auditing purposes.
The certification process will take place as an online meeting. You will be asked to share your screen so that we can watch you enter the appropriate certification parameters into your SIS, and so we can watch how the resulting transactions are submitted to the REST API. We will email each group of scenarios during the certification session, and will run scripts to verify the information has landed correctly on our database.
Feel free to contact us by email with questions at [email protected]. We look forward to working through this process with you.
