Article Summary

For Studio and IDHub, RapidIdentity pulls data from Infinite Campus via the OneRoster Provisioning API, which is free for districts.

In order to sync your data through the OneRoster API you'll need to make sure your Infinite Campus is on version 1733 or higher.
  • Districts using OneRoster provisioning prior to Campus 1733 are free to continue using it
  • District who were not using OneRoster provisioning prior to Campus 1733 may contact Campus Support to have the functionality enabled

Infinite Campus API Sync Details:

  • Runs by querying the OneRoster API Syncs all students who are designated as "active today" (activeToday = 1)
  • Syncs all active staff members ( = 1)
  • Supports co-teachers for sections (sectionInfo_teacherPersonID, sectionInfo_teacher2PersonID, etc)
  • Students and teachers need Infinite Campus Portal accounts in order to sync to RapidIdentity (see below)
  • RapidIdentity only has access to OneRoster compatible fields made available by Infinite Campus.
  • The available fields can be found here.

Requirement: User (Portal) Accounts

In order for a person to be accessible in the Infinite Campus OneRoster API (and thus synced to RI) the person needs a User (Portal) account in Infinite Campus.

For documentation on creating user accounts, please review this documentation. To create user accounts in bulk, please review this documentation.

To verify if a person has a user account, search for the user in Infinite Campus. If the person has a username, they have a user account. In the example below, "Amelkin, Federique" has a user account but "Freda, Irene" does not. As a result, "Freda, Irene" will not be accessible to Clever via the Infinite Campus OneRoster API. To add a user for a person, click Add User.
