Is there a way to use third party sso tokens for with the API?

Question asked by JACOB ANAVISCA on Jul 12, 2019

If Canvas is set up to use a third party OpenID Connect and a user signs in to the OpenID Connect IDP directly and then they sign in to an integration that utilizes the Canvas API an issue occurs when this endpoint is hit.

https://canvas.instructure.com/api/v1/courses?access_token=<ACCESS-TOKEN>

The access token is seen as invalid. Is there any way to utilize the third parties access token for the API without being required to sign in to the canvas openid_connect login?
