Transcript API (Early Adopter)

The Transcript API is a bundle of APIs providing access to the learner's transcript. The APIs follow the same business logic, security, rules, and events from the portal’s configuration.

The Transcript APIs were scheduled to be delivered in various milestones (from Open Beta or Early Adopter to General Availability), allowing our customers and partners to get involved early and provide feedback as needed.

The Transcript API Milestone 1 features were first made available to customers as an Open Beta only in stage portals in the July ’23 Release. The Transcript API Milestone 2 is available as an Early Adopter to customers with the November ’23 Release.
