How to derive external tool names from course_ui_navigation_item_fact?

Question asked by Ismail Orabi on Apr 27, 2018

We are trying to capture the external tools that are enabled (i.e. visible) across all our courses. The presence of external_tool_activation_id in the course_ui_navigation_item_fact table indicates this is the table that we would use, however it doesn't seem to include any external tools (i.e. all values are null for external_tool_activation_id).


  1. Has anyone successfully used canvas data for this scenario?
  2. If my observation is correct, does Canvas Data Services plan on adding external tools to this table?


Thank you!
