View Submissions

Hello all,

we have a special web application project where our clients should be able only view particular submitted assignments, not edit or download to local machine (this project will be probably just website using admin access token not LTI). The submissions can be pdf, ms doc, image, ... So far we came up with solution using canvas public inline preview url API (where file id is submission attachment id) and then just view the file within the browser using some JavaScript file rendering library like ViewerJS.

I was wondering if there is some other solution, for example we would like to have an iFrame window in our webpage showing direct Canvas submissions and it would be view only.

Thanks for any ideas,

 @z_dusatko ,

First, I want to apologize for your question sitting in the community for so long without a response.


Second, it looks like you have stumped the Canvas Community.  Were you able to find an answer to your question? I am going to go ahead and mark this question as answered because there hasn't been any more activity in a while so I assume that you have the information that you need. If you still have a question about this or if you have information that you would like to share with the community, by all means, please do come back and leave a comment.
