This document includes the step-by-step process on setting up a self-hosted Canvas Commons.
Awesome! Thanks for the instructions!
Just wanted to leave a few notes from my experience setting up commons with our self hosted canvas... just to save people trouble in the future.
When entering the config URL as you set up the external app, you can't just copy the url out of the instructions because... the dashes don't copy appropriately. So make sure the URL you use to set up the external tool is correct (you can test it by pasting it directly in your browser.... you should see an XML response) It should be something like this: https://lor.instructure.com/api/v1/self-hosted-setup/tool-config
Can I set up commons in our self-hosted server(AWS)?
Is it free for us ?
Where to get the key and secret?
I am getting Secure Connection Failed error when i clicked on continue setup .
Please help me here.
Thanks in Advance
If anyone has implemented this, could you please share how you are using this and the feedback from students and instructors? We are very interested in testing this out.. Biray Seitz, is this free? Is the Tool ID the Developer key? Where do we get the Client ID? Thanks so much for helping us get started!
On the last step "Commons is requesting access to your account.", I get a 502 Bad Gateway error. It seems like in the last call-back
"GET https://lor.instructure.com/api/oauth/canvas/account-setup-callback" the Instructure server is expecting some extra parameter, anyone got it to work?
I got same 502 Bad Gateway error.
In current version, when I add developer key, input form is different from the setup guide.
(In current version, there are "Key Name", "Owner Email", "Redirect URI(Legacy)", "Redurect URIs", "Vendor Code(LTI 2)", Icon URL", and "Notes". "Redurect URIs" and "Vendor Code(LTI 2)" are not written in the setup guide. I don't know "Vendor Code(LTI 2)", so I ignore that item.)
Has anyone recently succeeded in adding commons?
I get the following but I guess that this is because the user ID is one from our own installation and not that from our hosted instance?
Can anyone help...?
