Resolved Issues

Product Area



Backup / Restore

Performance has been improved when importing Oracle Application Express (APEX) content as part of a database restore by removing APEX logging older than 180 days when starting PowerSchool SIS.


Bell Schedule

A warning message will now appear when creating a period with the same Start Time and End Time. This is to ensure that Bell Schedule Periods have a duration of at least one minute as expected by various aspects of the system. 



The Submit button on the Edit Availability for Schools and Years page will now function properly when updating details from the Courses page.


Customizations / Integrations

As part of ongoing security improvements, Content Security Policy (CSP) response headers are now present on all browser requests. This will impact Customizations and Integrations that load content from third-party/external sites outside of the main PowerSchool SIS address.

A new {{cdn_request}} plugin.xml attribute has been added for Customizations and Integrations that require content from third-party sites to define external servers that the customization and/or integration will access. This attribute is present in PowerSchool SIS and greater, which is the minimum supported version starting August 15th.

Customizations and/or Integrations that utilize external content inside PowerSchool SIS will need to be updated by the issuer.

Documentation for the cdn_request attribute can be found on the PowerSchool Developer site. The previous link may return a blank page if you are not currently logged into PowerSource. 



Importing enrollment records will no longer fail when a contact's phone number matches that of an existing contact in the SIS but has a different delivery type.


Graduation Plan

The Graduation Plan Progress Report Data Capture function now provides more frequent status updates.


Graduation Plan

The Graduation Plan Progress no longer errors out when orphaned Student Test records exist


PowerSchool Components

PowerSchool SIS comprises several software components, each versioned independently. This allows for greater flexibility of component updates as new features and bug fixes become available. Some updates may include dependencies between components. These dependencies will be communicated and built into the component update installers to prevent PowerSchool SIS from being misconfigured. The following table identifies the version number for each PowerSchool SIS component in this release compared to the previous release:
