App without a developer key?

Question asked by Audra Agnelly on Feb 18, 2020

Hey Canvas Developers! I'm the admin for our district and received a request for a developer key from a student group for an app they're building as a course project. We rarely give out developer keys and I'm not comfortable with the idea of giving keys to students. I only have a little bit of information from the student regarding what they want to accomplish: "I am working on a year long group project, which is going to block websites based on upcoming Canvas assignments to keep people from getting distracted when they are trying to complete schoolwork at home.  In order to do so we need what is called OAuth2 permissions, which requires a developer key, so we can access Canvas data like upcoming assignments." I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for alternatives I could provide them with that would not involve the issuing of developer keys. TIA.
