Can't get Google Assignments installed

We have an instance of Canvas installed on a third-party hosting site. We've gotten a request to install Google Assignments for use in courses. We were sent this link with install instructions:

https://support.google.com/edu/assignments/answer/9069147

We do have admin access to the server. Going through these steps, we do not see anything under Development Keys->Inherited, including Google Assignments. If we try to add the Client ID under Step 2 (adding app), I get the error message "could not find an LTI configuration for client ID." This page:

https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Admin-Guide/How-do-I-configure-an-external-app-for-an-account-usi...

says that this means an LTI key must be configured. However, the info on the page on how to configure an LTI key...

https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Admin-Guide/How-do-I-configure-an-LTI-key-for-an-account/ta-p/140

has configuration methods that requires info about Google Assignments that I don't see anywhere in the first page I linked.

So I'm stuck and would really love some pointers. Thanks and sorry if I'm missing something, I am new to Canvas administration.

Good morning, @ceenvee703 

Full disclosure...I don't have much experience with this, so I'm not sure if this will apply to your question or not.  I wasn't sure of an answer, so I reached out to one of the Community Managers to see if I could get any insights.  His response was:

I don't know for sure but I'd actually be surprised if they could get an LTI to function on a local install.  I would direct them to the github forum if I were you.

Again, not sure if this will be of help or not, but providing you the information just in case.  Take care, stay safe, and be well.
