Homework Submission external tool "Invalid Submission type given"? And disabling file upload?

I am experimenting with using the "Homework Submission" feature for external LTI tools. After incorporating it, I had a few questions.

 

1) I can successfully have my server generate a URL, but Canvas doesn't seem to accept it. Something about a bad request? Is this because I didn't set something correct? In case it helps, here's the form parameters:

 

submission[submission_type]:online_url
submission[url]:http://i.imgur.com/abcde.jpg
comment[text_comment]:
_method:POST

 

And the error message:

Invalid submission[submission_type] given

 

 

2) Is there any way to disable the "File Upload" tab, or make it later in the list of options? I feel like users will be easily confused when it comes time to submit, and will upload the files instead of using the LTI tool.
