ContentItemSelectionRequest missing parameters?

I'm in the process of adding support for LTI Content-Item to our tool, and have found that Canvas does not send certain parameters that we depend on when explicitly enabling Content-Item support using

 

<lticm:property name="message_type">ContentItemSelectionRequest</lticm:property>

 

We're expecting things like

 

tool_consumer_info_product_family_code

lis_person_*

custom_canvas_user_login_id

 

in order to identify the Canvas user, but they appear to be missing in this case.

 

Is there some configuration setting that I'm missing to enable passing of these parameters, or is there a different/preferred approach to gathering this information from Canvas as part of a ContentItemSelectionRequest launch?
