Getting user_id when using client_credentials Oauth2 process

Hi everyone,

 

I am developing a tool for Canvas that uses LTI1.3. I have implemented the client_credentials process for my app, however the client_credentials process does not give me any way to identify the user that started the request.

 

I would like my app to receive user info (just name or id), and list their classes and send grades and create assignments, etc.

 

How is that done with client_credentials or another LTI1.3 compliant manner?

 

Great thanks to this developer community, it has been fantastic for developing this webapp.
