I'm not sure of the answer to this question, but I'm going to share it with the Canvas Mobile Users​ group to see if they can help!


Hi,  @qnguyen  ... I don't know what the answer is either, but wondered if the mobile docs over at GitHub would help you out at all?

iOS: GitHub - instructure/instructure-ios: iOS Apps and Frameworks by Instructure

Android: GitHub - instructure/instructure-android: Instructure's Open Source Android Code


Sounds like you need the mobile API documentation! I don't know what the behavior is if the app isn't installed, but if it is, and your app uses links formatted in this way, it will redirect to the Canvas mobile app instead of to the browser.

 @qnguyen ,

We are giving the Canvas Admins area a little bit of love (especially questions that are really, really old) and just want to check in with you.  This will also bring this question new attention.
