Institutional hierarchy is a valuable tool for some institutions. It provides a framework that reflects the institution's structure. This helps administrators to manage schools, departments, or academic programs in Learn.

We have improved the hierarchy management experience in Institutional Hierarchy. Users can move a child node to a new parent node via REST API.

Now, users can restructure their institutional hierarchy using the following endpoint:

  • PATCH /public/v1/institutionalHierarchy/nodes/{nodeId}

This feature helps users streamline the organization of courses, organizations, and users.

For administrators: Nodes cannot be moved into themselves, their child node, or parent nodes. The required entitlements for Course Content API remain unchanged.
