      Can a student be enrolled into a scheduled offering that has a price via the OData APIs?  I keep getting an error message response that the "Scheduled Offering is associated with a price" and the enrollment is not recorded.  I can successfully enroll a student into a Scheduled Offering that has a 0 price.

      Hoping you can point me in the right direction to figure this out.  We are on 1708 Success Factors Learning.

      Hi Rich

       

      1. What is the meaning of price using odata.
      2. I suggest you first update the price and then enroll.

      Ideally enrolling a candidate on course that ha no cost (not ZERO Cost) is not something I see possible.

      can you update the cost first and then send update for enrollment using odata.

      looking at above and few other documents i checked, enrollment seems to be possible on a course with cost only. cost can be 0 but not undefined.

      thanks

      Barin,

      I have used the document you referenced in the past.  I can get tokens and make API calls.  It was very helpful.

      In this case, the scheduled offering has a published price of 77 dollars.  If I enroll a student using the user interface I can pick a charge back account code as part of the enrollment and successfully enroll the student.

      I am trying to use the API to do the same enrollment.  The API I am using is learning/odatav4/public/admin/scheduledoffering-service/v1/Enrollments and posting the required values.

      When using that API to enroll a student into the class, I get an error message in the response. "Scheduled Offering is associated with a price”.

      If I change the published price of the scheduled offering to zero and then try again, the enrollment works.

      So it appears that either the API does not support enrolling in a scheduled offering that has a published price or there is additional setup to do in the system in order for the enrollment to be made with the API.

      I am very grateful for any knowledge you can share.

      Regards

      Hi Rich

      As you have used the API and you are getting the response message around enrollment I would go with you.

      Sorry for delayed response.

      thanks

      Follow up: I am told by an NS2 consultant that if the scheduled offering has a default price, the API cannot be used to enroll into that scheduled offering.  I am hoping to discover a work around to this but so far I have not found anything.

      I wanted you to review below link as well. I think if you have tested that in any course with price, enrollment through API is a challenge then I suggest you to raise this as a product enhancement request.

      https://help.sap.com/viewer/28bc3c8e3f214ab487ec51b1b8709adc/1908/en-US/175848220e3443939f999bf65e575a8d.html

      I am unsure if there has been any change since october 2019 but I will check and connect back.

      thanks

      Hi Puneet

       

      apologies, i am too now getting page not found error. I think I had just pasted the links that carried list of api for LMS.

       

      you can go to api.sap.com and search for the same as again posting a url may cause confusion.

       

      regards
