Is there a data set that includes cascading enrollment data for Course Offerings and Course Sections?

Neither 'Enrollments and Withdrawals' nor 'User Enrollments' appears to include cascading enrollments.

    Hello @Charles.K.718

    Thank you for reaching us through the Brightspace community. Unfortunately, No - the Brightspace Data Sets do not currently include cascading enrollments - only explicit enrollments.

    We did however develop the Advanced Data Set: Course Offering Enrollments which will pull both explicit and cascading enrollments into course offerings. It is very important NOT to run this ADS at the top of the org unit - but instead to set an Org Unit ID filter lower in the org structure as well as a short time frame to reduce the risk time outs. Pulling cascading enrollments is a resource-intensive effort - therefore the filters should be set to reduce the results as much as possible.

    I hope the provided information is helpful.
