Availability of CEPI Services
Please see the statement below from our colleagues at CEPI regarding system updates and an offline period for services.  Accordingly, the UIC and Snack-pack services will be offline from Friday, September 11th at 4pm through Monday, September 22nd only.

CEPI has been upgrading its existing database servers to Microsoft SQL Server 2017 for the past several months. This upgrade improves processing capacity and allows our database administrator staff to leverage new SQL features. 

The final phase of updates focuses on production database servers, which host our live collection application data, thus this update will require a pause to system availability. CEPI production database servers, applications and services will be offline from Friday, Sept. 11 at 4 p.m. through Monday, Sept. 22. Additionally, MSDS will remain offline through Sunday, Sept. 27 to perform rollover to the 2020-21 school year; however, the MI Data Hub Identities API (UIC and Snack-pack) will be available during rollover.

MiDataHub provides a status on these services on our website. Please navigate to > "Support" > "Status" or by  clicking here.
