SchoolPass and Veracross Integration

As of July 12, 2021, this "Learn Veracross" site has been deprecated.  It will remain live at least through December 23, 2021, but will no longer be updated. All knowledge content has moved to the new Veracross Community.  Please update your bookmarks. 

Here is the new version of this article in the Veracross Community.

Overview

This article provides an overview of Veracross integration with the SchoolPass using our new Veracross API as well as directions for setting up your integration between SchoolPass and Veracross. This integration is a seamless, real-time data sync between your SchoolPass attendance automation solution and your Veracross single record of truth. There is no cost from Veracross to use this integration as it uses our open Veracross API.

To learn more about how the integration works, watch the video below. 

If your school does not already have SchoolPass and is interested in learning more about their offering, contact your Account Manager and they can get you connected to the right person. 

Setting up Integration Between Veracross and SchoolPass

Because this integration uses the new Veracross API, setup can be completed as a self-serve activity by users with the OAuth_App_Admin role.

  1. Create an OAuth Application record using these directions. Since this integration only needs to enable the Data API, you don't need to worry about adding a Redirect URI.
  2. Once you've created the OAuth Application, you'll need to add the following scopes. When SchoolPass adds additional integration features with Veracross, you may need to add more scopes.
    1. students:list
    2. students:read
    3. master_attendance:update
    4. master_attendance:list
    5. master_attendance:read
  3.  Share the Client ID and Client Secret with your SchoolPass point of contact. SchoolPass may need a few more pieces of information from you on things like what time does school officially start for each grade.
