Serving up JSON for ward directories

Postby zadela » Tue Apr 17, 2018 10:16 pm

Is there any place I can make requests to that serves up (with the proper credentials passed) a ward directory in the form of JSON? I'm trying to make a program that makes it easier for ward clerks at BYU-Idaho to sync up the school directory with the ward directory. Having an endpoint that serves up JSON would make that task pretty easy.

I've not heard of one. The trend has been to remove exports. Sometimes we don't know why, other times we're told it's to protect privacy.

No, there is nothing that supports what you are asking for.

There were some customized features in MLS for BYU wards. I don't think those have been ported to LCR. If you have some ideas for something that would simplify the record management process for those wards, feel free to send suggestions to LCR feedback.
