SIF Infrastructure Implementation Specification 3.3 enters Community Review

SIF Infrastructure Implementation Specification 3.3 enters Community Review


SIFSPecThis may be our most impactful Infrastructure release since we switched to REST, due to the inclusion of components to express privacy controls over the wire, which even ensures the latest set is known by the receiving system.  This joint effort with the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC), a Special Interest Group of the A4L Community, is just the biggest change in this landmark release. 

Members are encouraged to review the proposed Specification release and help us get it right!

Current Scope for this release includes: Privacy Integration, Version Indication/Negotiation, PESC JSON Adoption, Global Core Objects for Cloud/App integration, and clarifications* (not intended to change the meaning of the specification.)

The Community Review is currently slated to run from March 28 – April 14, 2019 (inclusive).  Members are encouraged to provide their approval/feedback before COB on April 14 and will need to login to the website to access the survey.  A link to the Specification documentation can be found via the survey here.
