Canvas course search is searching by internal ID

Question asked by Claudia Andrade on Oct 2, 2019



When I perform a course search in Canvas, the search is returning related courses, but it is also returning courses that have a matching internal ID.

For example, the courses in our university have a course name format in the form "192ABC123". 

Say that there is a second course "190WWW444" with an internal Canvas internal ID of 192. 


If I go to the course search and type "192ABC123", two courses will be returned. Both "192ABC123" and "190WWW444" will be returned because the latter has an internal ID of 192 and therefore "matches" the search query.


Is there any way to shut off course search by internal Canvas ID?
