Any way to keep external tools set up in Canvas test/beta pointing to the test/beta versions across test/beta refresh?

Hi all,

 

We have a few external tools set up for our institution with test and production instances.  We have them set up so that in TEST Canvas Cloud instance, the external tools point to the test instance of the tool.  I'm having to remove and (re)set up the external tools in TEST Canvas Cloud instance every three weeks when data gets refreshed from production.  Is there a way to prevent this?  I have followed the "Test Environment Setting Examples" in Canvas LMS REST API Documentation.  But it doesn't seem to work.  Maybe I'm doing it all wrong.  Has anyone had success with this or any other method?  if so, would you mind sharing?

 

Thanks!

Kumi
