Known issues indicate notable behaviors that has been escalated to the Canvas engineering team. Known issues are not a guarantee for an immediate resolution. This document is for informational purposes only and does not replace the Support process. If you are encountering the behavior outlined in this document, please ensure you have submitted a Support case (per your institution's escalation process) so Canvas Support can adequately gauge the overall customer impact and prioritize appropriately.
Description

 

When self registration is disabled, users can still generate pairing codes in the student app, contrary to this document's claim of the self-registration requirement: Mobile Pairing Code PDF

Expected Behavior


Admins need control over this feature to prevent unauthorized access to student data. Pairing codes shouldn’t work in the apps when self registration is disabled since this prevents them from working in the browser. The apps should be updated to reflect parity OR the self registration requirement should be eliminated and pairing codes should be enabled via an individual account setting that disables pairing codes for all platforms.

Workaround


No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce

 

  1. Disable "Self registration" under Canvas Authentication

  2. Log in as Student in student mobile app

  3. Navigate and generate pairing code
