Export grades to SIS feature after Luminis EOL

Options

We are the State University of New York (SUNY) Downstate HSU campus. We began transitioning our five colleges/schools to using D2L Brightspace in summer 2022 and have completed that transition. We wanted to begin using the Submit Grades to Banner SIS feature as described in this article:

https://community.d2l.com/brightspace/kb/articles/22808-banner-grades

When we asked our SUNY's IT application support group to enable it for us, they indicated that it requires an Ellucian application (Luminis) that is at End of Life this summer.

The article above makes no mention of Luminis or of D2L's efforts, if any, to rebuild this tool. What's happening? Is D2L ending this feature or do they have a plan on how to reprogram so it can continue?

    Hello @jim.neill@downstate.edu

    The older integration you are referring to does rely on the Luminis platform that is reaching its end of life by Ellucian. There is a newer integration, ILP, that can be used with the newer Ellucian features. This integration does have a different grades exchange option available. We recommend connecting with your D2L Account Team to discuss options for integrating with Brightspace and grades exchange.
