Hello, we have a project were we are trying to authenticate canvas users from an external site, once the canvas users are authenticated, they must remain on the external site and have access to our institution services.

So we are trying to do the following, students accesss our institution portal and then complete a custom login form.

Username and password are then sent to our institution canvas login page via php cURL, were we expect to capture the response.

But we are not getting the correct authentication, it seems that canvas login page blocks any attempt to login via cURL.

I wonder if perhaps someone has implemented something similar.

Best regards!
