Talis Aspire DCS Integration Synchronisation


Talis Aspire allows universities to select their choice of copyright clearance solution, and so we have recently released an integration with the CLA Digital Content Store (DCS). This article takes you through the synchronisation process we have set up. 


At 02:00 GMT every day the Talis Aspire DCS integration will synchronise with your live DCS instance. Talis use the Get Course Content API to search for courses and then match against the DCS Request ID and will reflect any changes in status. For example, if anything has been made live in DCS that day it will make the item live on the Talis Aspire Reading List for the student to view. Likewise, if an item on DCS has been withdrawn during the day, it will then be withdrawn from the student view after the synchronisation. 

What if I need a scan to go live immediately? 

Once a request has been fulfilled in DCS, you are able to manually synchronise with Talis Aspire so that the item goes live on Talis Aspire Reading Lists. To do this, select the 'refresh' button at the end of the title of the request itself, as shown in the screenshot below: 




This will then update the request if there have been any changes to the item in DCS, if there are none it will provide a message to state there are no changes.
