Course sections from an external tool

I’m looking for a way to update my Canvas external tool with the currently active course sections.

Currently, I'm receiving each user's current sections (name and id) as a custom field defined in the developer key:



Unfortunately, this doesn't provide any data about deleted sections.

What would be the best practice for getting the full list of sections, particularly to discover if a section was deleted, from my external tool’s backend?

There isn’t a report in Canvas that I’m aware of that will pull deleted sections that have used a specific external tool. We have this guide but that isn’t going to get them to what they want.


I found this community post but it is talking about a custom script. You can run a provisioning report to find sections and included deleted objects but that isn’t going to provide which ones have a specific external tool installed
