I have added an external tool in which I want to access the user_id of the student who is logged in. I need to have the oauth2 framework in place to use the APIs. I went through the docs and found this link.

OAuth2 - Canvas LMS REST API Documentation


my basic request looks like this


I have my canvas local running on localhost:3000 and my app running on localhost:8000


I don't see any popup which will have authorize and cancel buttons.


any clue guys...


Thanks in advance
