With the Senior Systems integration, you can eliminate the hassle of double-handling data between two systems. Senior Systems will manage core information fields within Orah, so any updates made within Senior Systems will reflect in Orah upon your next automatic or manual sync. This will help ensure your data is consistent and accurate across the board.

What data can you sync?

Orah is capable of syncing your most relevant pupil information from Senior Systems. See below for the exact information that can be integrated.

Pupil Information:

  • First name

  • Last name

  • Student Reference ID

  • Email

  • Home Phone

  • Sex

  • Date of Birth

  • Grade Level

  • House (Dorm) Assignment

Contact information:

  • First name

  • Last name

  • Relationship

  • Home Phone

  • Mobile Phone

  • Email

  • Address


  • House (Dorm) names


  • Create

  • Edit

  • Delete


To be able to integrate with Orah, you'll need to generate specific authentication information from within Senior Systems. You (or your school's IT department) will collect an API URL, API Username, and API Password.

Note: If you have any questions about generating the necessary authentication information from within Senior Systems, please visit the Senior Systems Support page at

Once this is completed, go into the Integrations panel in your Orah account to populate the API URL, the API Username, the API Password, and flip the day student toggle if you want to include the full student body.

When you click "Enable Integration", the first sync will occur.

How it works

By enabling this integration, your Senior Systems API credentials will be authenticated and saved to our Orah database. An initial sync will take place to import all students from your Senior Systems database and merge any existing students in the Orah database.

Managing your data

Syncing your data

You can set the automatic sync to occur once every 24 hours (generally overnight) or alternatively, you can perform a manual sync with a single click which will sync your student information instantly.

Existing students

If you already have students in your Orah account, we do our best to automatically link existing students via individual matching references from within Orah and Senior Systems. If we are unable to match your students, you will find these students are listed on the debugger page where you can search and match these students.

Deleting students

As Senior Systems will manage your core information, you will need to mark a student as inactive in Senior Systems in order to remove them from your Orah account. We offer the option of deleting students, which will permanently remove all records associated with this student, or a deactivate option which will archive their records. The deactivate option is applied by default.
