Hi all,

This is my first time posting on this forum. Is there an API call that returns information about the calling user?

Example:

Student Jim Lee accesses a third party learning tool. Once they authorize and authenticate, we would like to get information about that student such as email, first name, last name, major, year (Freshman, sophomore, junior..).

 

This is the REST API I have been working with. Canvas LMS REST API Documentation
