2. Certification Types

Types of Certifications

There are 3 types of Clever integrations and there is a certification process for each. They are listed below. If you are unsure which integration type you need to build, please fill out the following form to help inform your decision:

Library

Library integrations are teacher-initiated. Teachers can add your application through the Clever Library. Teachers can then provision accounts on-demand for themselves as well as the students who are enrolled in their classes.

Through this integration type, the application receives the teacher name, teacher email, student first name and last initial, as well as section (class) information.

To learn more about the Library Certification process, see Library Certification Guide

Working with Teachers

See the documentation below to learn more about how applications connect with teachers.

District SSO

District SSO integrations are managed by district administrators. Your application can be added through the Request Application page of the district dashboard. This integration should facilitate SSO into your application for any Clever user that has been scoped by a district administrator.

To learn more about the District SSO Certification process, see District SSO Certification Guide

Through this integration type, the application receives user first name, last name, and email address.

Secure Sync

Secure Sync integrations are managed by district administrators. Your application can be added through the Request Application page of the district dashboard. This integration will allow you to pull district, school, user, and enrollment data into your application through the Clever API as long as the district has chosen to share that data.

Through this integration type, the application can receive user personal and demographic data as well as rostering data.

What fields does each integration type offer?

For a detailed list of available fields in each integration type, see the Clever API Schema.

What if I want to be certified for more than one integration type?

Any combination of integration types is okay.

  • If you are building a Library and District SSO integration at the same time, you only need to submit for certification once.
  • If you are building a Library and Secure Sync integration at the same time, you will need to be certified for both separately.
  • If you are building a District SSO and Secure Sync integration at the same time, you only need to submit for certification once.
  • If you are building any combination of the integration types separately, you will need to be certified for each separately as well.
