How to display data from external tool in "Instructor View"

I have an “External Tool” that gathers feedback on assignments in a course. I am saving the feedback gathered by this "External Tool" of mine on my server. I want to bring this list of feedback by calling the APIs offered by my tool and show the feedback to the instructor. What feature of Canvas should i use to display this list of feedback to the instructor?

 @selvi , greetings! Due to the technical nature of this question I've shared it with the Canvas Developers‌ group in the Community. Hopefully someone from there will be able to help!

Thanks  @kona ‌! On further exploration i found "Configured External Apps" could be a solution to introduce "Navigation Menu" links. More info on this approach is welcome. Canvas Developers, please let me know if there are other ways to accomplish this.

Is your "External Tool" an LTI tool?

If so, you could check the role of the user launching it and if they are an instructor, given them an interface to see the feedback.

Yes, it is a LTI tool. Thanks for the suggestion Peter!
