Generate admin token

Jump to solution

Im an LTI developer working with the canvas dev site. One of the api calls Im trying to make tells me I dont have the authority to access the resource. How do I generate an admin api token that gives me full access to all the api endpoints?

Ive tried generating a new token following this guide but the api still tells me I dont have permission.

Hi @MatthewMoreno 

You would need to have the Account Admin role, or a custom role that specifically gives you the rights you need.
