    It'd be great if the module_item_dim table in Canvas Data included a external_tool_id field for module items that link to an external tool. This would really help our institution assess the usage of specific external tools. Right now, we can only tell if a specific tool is being used in an assignment (using the assignment_dim table) or the course navigation (using the course_ui_navigation_item_fact table).

     

    Interestingly, this data is available through the API (using the content_id field of a ModuleItem object), just not through Canvas Data.
