Campus will not support issues with the 1.0 connection after 12/31/19. No action is required from districts at this time; vendors should have implemented or be working towards OneRoster version 1.1 or the upcoming 1.2. As vendors move to new versions, districts will need to provide the v1p1 or upcoming v1p2 API Base URLs.
