If you have installed Canvas Data Services in your account, you can add and manage data streams in your account.

Notes:

  • Viewing Data Services is an account permission. If you cannot view the Data Services link in Account Navigation, this permission has not been enabled for your user account.
  • Accounts must have a supported data stream service URL to receive data streams.
  • Canvas Data streams may include personal information for Canvas users. You should only stream data to trusted services and endpoints.
