Thanks for posting to the Community,

It looks like this has been asked before. Checking a good conversation in the community here: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Canvas-Question-Forum/CRM-Integrations/m-p/226651

That answer was " C‌anvas has a robust API (Canvas LMS REST API Documentation), so it can integrate with many applications. We did some integrations here with Salesforce. There's nothing out of the box on either end, so you'll have to program the integrations in-house or hire a service provider to build them for you."

Your Customer Success Manager can help setup these integrations as well if you reach out to them. If you are needing help with setting up such an integration, I would suggest reaching out to the Customer Success Manager to help start that conversation.

 @jgage ​, since your prompt elicits an open-ended discussion, with no single correct answer likely to ensue, I've flipped the format accordingly. Also, if I'm not mistaken, the Canvas Support Ticketing System is powered by Salesforce.

The Executive Education (non-degree) program at Columbia Business School is also interested in integrating with Salesforce to feed in courses, sections, users, and enrollments. We currently have integration working for our degree programs, which use a separate Canvas instance and a business-school specific SIS (Registrar from Darden Solutions/University of Virginia Darden School of Business).

Given the lack of responses to this thread, I take it few users in the Community use Salesforce as a SIS.

I agree Nelson - the lack of responses leads me to think the same thing.

Anyone else thinking about integrating with Salesforce?

Thanks

We are also interested in this.  My gut tells me that it would likely be possible (either via API or LTI) but I would love to hear from anyone who has done this already.

Has anyone heard of, or encountered a possible solution to this problem? We've Salesforce as our CRM, and I have been looking for a SSO solution that allows students to log into Salesforce and Canvas using the same credentials, and view a student's comprehensive information from both sources - Salesforce and Canvas.
Thanks in advance.

Hello,

We too are looking at using Sales Force as the SIS that feeds Canvas information about enrollments. I see the dates on these posts are years old so I am wondering if any progress was made on this front and if anyone can share how they did it or what they considered or any information on the topic.

 

Thank you,

Hi all,

We have built a SIS & eCommerce platform that integrates Canvas with, among other things, CRM systems like Salesforce. No need to build your custom integrations anymore! 

 

I've included a link to our partner listing in this community, but feel free to reach out if you have additional questions. Hope this helps.
