Authentication Login Attribute Change

Community Member

Currently we have our Login Attribute set to NameID in the Authentication setting. Can this be changed to SIS ID in the Authentication page and Azure? Or is anyone using the SIS ID for the login attribute already?

We have a purge process in our SIS and Active Directory, which deletes user accounts and frees up user names. We found that because there is not a purge process in Canvas old records will have a username still assigned that may match a newly created user and SSO will allow the new user to see all of their old content or course work. Using the SIS ID for authentication would eliminate this as those are unduplicated.
