SumTotal Connector

  • SumTotal Connector uses SumTotal API to fetch the courses, assignments and completions data
  • Supports configuration based content retrieval with SumTotal Activity type ID filters
  • Smart Cards are created for Courses
  • Curriculum is represented as one card in LXP. Child Content will be displayed in SumTotal
  • Supports fetching completions data via API with PK# of the user
  • LXP synchronizes the courses, assignments and completions data from SumTotal once in a day

SumTotal Connector - Things to note

  • SumTotal API does not return hidden courses. So hidden courses will not be visible in LXP
  • Since LXP doesn’t have information about hidden courses, LXP will not show the assignment or completion data for hidden courses in MLP
  • Un-assignment in SumTotal will not reflect in LXP as there is no API to get the un-assignment information

SumTotal Connector

SumTotal Connector can be configured from LXP Admin Console -> Content -> LMS Integrations
