School Data Sync required attributes for Clever sync

Note: 

Instead of using CSV (comma separated value) files to synchronize School Information System (SIS) data with Office 365, you can use School Data Sync to connect directly to your Clever Instance. With this sync method, you use the REST-based API Endpoints provided by Clever to sync data directly from Clever to Office 365.

When you're creating a sync profile using the Clever sync method, you must have required attributes listed below, fully populated in the Clever Instance. Any object that does not contain the required attributes will fail to sync and generate an error within the SDS portal. You can also include any of the optional attributes listed below as well.

This topic lists the required attributes. Learn more about how to deploy School Data Sync by using Clever Sync.
