What data is available to applications
Application providers will be able to access only the level of information they need to enable a user to fully utilise their app. Each application provider will request an integration level and will need to supply a suitable justification to access that level of information.
What is the SMS extender?
To ensure the information in a school’s Student Management System remains private and secure, Tahi accesses data from the SMS via an “SMS Extender”, a separate holding tank for the set of user information needed. The SMS Extender holds only the most recent information (it is updated every day from the SMS) and it creates a “Tahi identity” for each user, so the source data from the SMS is not available to N4L, any application providers, or any other user.
