Combining California’s most popular Student Information System and Data & Assessment Platform makes for an excellent experience for shared users. Any new Aeries-Illuminate Integrations should utilize the Aeries API. Legacy Illuminate Education customers may have an older console application that can now be replaced with an API connection. Please reach out to your Illuminate support representative to ensure these changes can be made.
The instructions below can be used to create an API Certificate for Illuminate Education:
1. Login to your Aeries website as an admin
2. Go to Security -> API Security
3. Select the “Add New Record” button
4. Enter the product name (Illuminate Education) and any comment you’d like, then click Insert.
5. Add the permissions listed below:
|Table/Program Area||Permission Needed|
|Free and Reduced||Read|

6. Select the checkbox next to “Display Certificate Details”
You'll provide the Certificate along with your Aeries base URL * to Illuminate so that the y can connect to the API.
*The "base URL" is the entire web address of your Aeries system leading up to the part that says "/Login.aspx" or "/LoginParent.aspx" (before logging in)
In this example, the highlighted text is the "base URL." Your own base URL will be different.
For hosted customers, your base URL can be like any of the following (replace "yourdistrictname" with your actual assigned URL address):
