Step 1: Create an OAuth2 Application

OAuth2 credentials are necessary to integrate IllumiDesk with your Learning Management System

Create an OAuth2 Application

You need to create an OAuth2 application to obtain a Consumer Key and Shared Secret to integrate IllumiDesk with your LTI compliant Canvas Learning Management System (LMS).

Creating an OAuth2 application is simple! After you have obtained your IllumiDesk user account credentials with the staff role, you can then create an OAuth2 application within your account settings.

  1. If you have not done so, request your user account credentials from the IllumiDesk team.
  2. Log into IllumiDesk and open your Profile context menu on the top right and corner and click on Settings.
  3. Click on the OAuth2 menu option.
  4. Add a new OAuth2 application with an identifiable App Name.

Once you have created your OAuth2 application, you can view your Consumer Key and Shared Secret values at any time by clicking on the chevron icon next to your OAuth2 application name:

Credentials for Multiple Environments

Although not obligatory, we strongly suggest creating a different set of credentials for your development and production environments.

Once you have created your keys, you can then add the IllumiDesk application to your Canvas Course. Select the Add as URL option and then add your Consumer key, Shared secret and the Config URL:

Add IllumiDesk application to the course with the URL configuration type

Add IllumiDesk application to the course with the URL configuration type
