Canvas Commons - Identify LTIs in Items Details

    I'd like to see the Canvas Commons - Details area identify if any LTIs have been associated with the cartridge file? This is needed for Modules and Courses.


    When an LTI is imported as part of a cartridge file, it will install itself if no key/secret are required. This is dangerous and a security risk as it overrides administrative settings even with a whitelist. As a result, we have chosen to disable the ability to search other institutions Commons items until this risk removed.


    Installation of LTIs via the imported as part of a cartridge file also show little to no details in the import log area.




    How do I use Commons?
