Has anyone used Brightspace datasets to identify group enrolments?


I'm looking for a way to manage bulk group enrolments for specific types of groups that are managed centrally.

The only option I can see currently is to manually unenroll students from a group (one . . . by . .. one), which seems unnecessarily tedious and I don't want to do that.

There doesn't seem to be a Brightspace dataset available that tracks group enrolments.

Has anyone set up a flow to track these? All I need is to generate a list of Group_ID and User_ID.

    @Mary.C.485 The GroupID that you can get from D2L is actually an OrgUnitID because groups are included in the Organizational Units data set. The Type field will be Group instead of Semester, Department, Course Offering, etc. Groups are descendants of other org units, so you can join Organizational Unit Descendants and Organizational Units to get a list of groups within each course. Then you can join User Enrollments to get the UserIDs of everyone enrolled in those groups.
