Steps to Repeat:
  1. Log into Blackboard Learn as an Administrator
  2. Go to Admin Panel > Integrations > Data Integration > Student Information System Integrations > Create an integration 
    • Note: Make sure the integration allows copying from template. This can be done through the options menu of the integration > Advanced configuration > Courses > Field Mapping > Source Course Copy Key > Check the box of Update and make sure the drop down says "Template course Key"
  3. Create a new course through SIS using as a template course: Admin Panel > Integrations > Data Integration > Student Information System Integrations > Upload Feed File > Course > Submit.
  4. Using the API  /learn/api/public/v2/courses/{courseId}/gradebook/columns/{columnId} a due date.

Observed Behavior: "status": 500 error
Expected Behavior: The Due Date is changed.
