Managing your Infinite Campus SIS Integration with OneRoster 1.1 and OAuth2

Overview 

OneRoster 1.1 is a data exchange standard designed specifically for the education sector. It enables schools to securely share data between their SIS and other educational applications, such the Securly Reveal product. OneRoster 1.1 defines a standard set of data elements that can be used to exchange information about students, classes, and enrollments.

OAuth2 is a newer version of the OAuth protocol that simplifies the authentication process by using access tokens instead of tokens and secrets. It also provides more granular control over the types of data that can be accessed by 3rd party applications. OAuth2 supports multiple authentication methods, including username and password, authorization code, and client credentials.

It is important to note that OAuth1 will no longer be supported as of June 30, 2023. Therefore, it is a requirement for all schools to migrate to OneRoster 1.1 and OAuth2 in order to continue to successfully share data.

For Securly Reveal customers, this article is intended to help with the transition from using OneRoster 1.1 and OAuth1 to OneRoster 1.1 and OAuth2. All Reveal customers will need to migrate to this integration method in 2023 to ensure the continued secure sharing of data between the Infinite Campus SIS and the Securly Reveal solution. 

Getting Setup 

Dyknow’s Import Manager tool allows Dyknow Administrators to easily import data from the Infinite Campus SIS into Dyknow solutions. These products include both Dyknow Classroom and Securly Reveal.  

Note: Infinite Campus uses the “primary” field to identify the Primary Teacher of a Class. When multiple Teachers are listed for a class, all will be assigned to the class and displayed in alphabetical order.
