We are interested in pulling LMS data into Captivate  2019 using APIs. How can we go about doing this?

That looks like a 'reversed' workflow. Two variables are populated automatically from the LMS data in most LMSs: cpQuizInfoStudentID and cpQuizInfoStudentName. They are used in learning interactions like the Certificate. Which other type of information do you want to extract?

We want to extract other information from the LMS such as date of hire, country, things that we cannot currently pull.  Would we need to work with a specific team at Captivate to build this?

You'll need a programmer for sure, I cannot help you because my expertise is in Captivate functionalities.

Is there someone we need to contact there at Adobe that we would work with on this?

This is not Adobe.  This is just a User Forum for one of Adobe's products (Captivate).  All the assistance here is provided by other Captivate users. Rarely does anyone that actually works for Adobe chime in.

 

I would suggest you need to find a programmer that is familiar with your specific LMS because the API you would need to build would be querying the database structure of your LMS first.  Once your programmer has verified that this is possible, then you need to crack the other problem of pulling that data into a published HTML5 Captivate project to display or manipulate.

Sorry, was in dreamland...

A common misunderstanding: this is mainly a user forum, you can try to contact Adobe directly but using this forum is not the correct way. However, since your request is mainly linked with the used LMS I wonder if you wouldn't have a better answer when contacting the LMS people.
