Passing Section and SIS ID information from Canvas to WeBWork

We have set up the WeBWork LTI in Canvas and it's working like we want it to so far, but there's some tweak that we need involving custom LTI paramenters

Here's what's in WeBWork:

When auto-provisioning a student we want to additionally pull the users SIS ID and the SIS Section ID, which I think means adding custom fields in the app configuration:

When I add, for example:

Student ID= lis_person_sourcedid

it does not get the user's ID, it just adds "lis_person_sourcedid"  literally to the Users List record when we want the student ID number for the user.  

 

Our WeBWork server is self-hosted, so this is our first time working on "this side" of the LTI, so hopefully some of the more experience admins can help us to get this information pulled from Canvas to WeBWork.

 

Thanks,

Paul
