How to pass data from external app to a Canvas page?

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I am new to Canvas and LTI development in general and stuck on an issue.

We have a use case where we've created an external button on the rich content editor, which opens up a page from our application in a modal. This displays a table list of data, and the instructor selects one of the entries from the list.

What I am looking for is a way to pass data from our external tool back to the rich content editor on the page.

It sounds like you are describing the LTI deep linking (formerly called "content item") workflow. You'll need to follow the deep linking specification of the LTI standard. For more info you can read here: https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/file.content_item.html
