  • Setting up Auto-Merge through Entity Linkage Settings

    The Entity Linkage Settings within the Platform enables organizations to Dual Link users between their respective Learning Management System (LMS), Student Information System (SIS) and custom course and user provisioning APIs. The linkage settings can be controlled by the IT Manager in the Platform under the Admin Panel. Here, you can turn linkage on for courses and users, and set the linkage attribute.
     

    LTI Linkage Settings

    The LTI Linkage Setting page is designed to map newly created users and Media Channels being sent from the Learning Management System to existing users and Media Channels in the Platform previously created by an API.

    1. Log in as an IT Manager and select Admin Panel.
    2. On the next page, open the Integrations menu.
    3. Scroll down to the section labeled Entity Linkage Settings.
    4. In the section for LTI Linkage Settings, check the following boxes.
    5. On the top right of the screen, select the Save button.

     

    API Linkage Settings

    The API Linkage Setting page is designed to map newly created users and courses being sent from the API to existing users and Media Channels within the Platform previously created by an API.

    1. Log in as an IT Manager and select Admin Panel.
    2. On the next page, open the Integrations menu.
    3. Scroll down to the section labeled Entity Linkage Settings.
    4. In the section for API Linkage Settings, check the following boxes.
    5. On the top right of the screen, select the Save button.

     

    Testing the Integration

    Whether you enabled the LTI or the API Linkage Settings section, the last step would be to confirm that both the Media Channels and Users between the two entities merge without duplication.
     

    Testing the LTI Linkage Entity

    1. Login on the Learning Management System side under the user and Media Channel you wish to merge on the API side.
    2. Click on the LTI link to access the Platform.
    3. After clicking on the LTI link from the Learning Management System, ensure that a new user and Media Channel is not created within the Platform. But rather the user and Media Channel merge into the existing entities created from the API.
    4. Testing the API Linkage Entity

      1. Run the custom API to include the user and Media Channel you wish to merge on your Learning Management System side.
      2. Once the API call is complete, ensure that a new user and Media Channel is not created within the Platform. But rather the user and Media Channel merge into the existing entities created from the the Learning Management System.
