Overview

ClassLink uses the OneRoster framework in order to provide both rostering into the BIOZONE eBooks site as well as SSO services.
Just like OneRoster, Schools and Districts wanting to use ClassLink will need to have a OneRoster compliant SIS in order to use this integration.

You can find more information about ClassLink on their website:

How to Setup

Our ClassLink integration is able to be managed by admins in your BIOZONE eBooks account.

It takes five easy steps!

  1. Add the BIOZONE eBooks app to ClassLink
    BIOZONE will then approve your request so you can start sharing data

  2. Filter the users and information you want to sync into our platform
    For easy management and to ensure user privacy is kept, we recommend only syncing data necessary for using the eBooks platform. We require:
    - Username
    - Email
    - First Name
    - Last Name
    - Class Name
    - Role (Teacher, Student, etc)

    Make sure to check out ClassLink for help in filtering users, or contact our friendly IT Support team.

  3. BIOZONE to Enable OneRoster(ClassLink)
    A member of the BIOZONE team will then need to enable OneRoster(ClassLink) within your BIOZONE eBooks account in order to proceed.
    Once complete, you will be altered as such and will need access to your admin account in order to proceed.
  4. Setup and Test your connection
    Login to the BIOZONE eBooks platform as an admin user and navigate to OneRoster V2 found under the Settings tab.
    Then select " Create New"


    On the next screen you'll have three options to select. In order to setup ClassLink, please use the following 

    - Select District - There should only be one selection to make, please select your district name
    - Sync Options - Select OneRoster API
    - Select Provider - Select ClassLink

    Once complete, select "Start Configuration"

    On the next screen, you will be prompted to add the API URLConsumer Key, and Secret Key for ClassLink.
    After entering this information, select "Test Connection"


    On the next screen, you will be prompted to select the data from ClassLink to filter into the platform.
    We recommend selecting all Schools and Courses available and instead use the ClassLink app to be the one source of truth for filtering data into BIOZONE eBooks.
    If you are troubleshooting a course or group of users who are not rostered into the platform, it might be worth checking back on this page to make sure all courses and schools are selected.



  5. Start syncing data
    The final page will show a review of the information you are filtering into the eBooks platform.
    When you are ready, select "Start Sync" to begin syncing data into the eBooks platform.

    Please note: the sync process can take up to one hour to complete, if you are experiencing issues with your sync, make sure to contact the IT Support team.



When your data has successfully synced into the platform, don't forget to assign your licenses so that your users are able to access their BIOZONE content.
