I am trying to locate custom_canvas_user_id for a user in Canvas but not sure where I can find it. Could someone explain it? Thanks.
I have never seen a field by that name. Can you be more specific about what you're doing or searching for?
I'm also going to tag Canvas Developers Data and Analytics, in case anyone else can help.
The following are common user id's:
Admins can see most of these ID's on the users profile page. Others only exist for integration and reporting tasks.
Login ID and SIS User ID are seen here, SIS Import Format Documentation - Canvas LMS REST API Documentation
Canvas ID and Global Canvas ID are used in the API for users, the API docs call it user_id.
Users - Canvas LMS REST API Documentation
But, the API allows accessing users and records by SIS ID too.
Object IDs, SIS IDs, and special IDs - Canvas LMS REST API Documentation
All the IDs are common in Canvas Data.
Robert has given you some good information here! I don't know much about this but I believe the short (and vague) answer is that you will find it using the Canvas API. Here are two additional items in the Community that reference this field. Hopefully, they will help along with the API documentation.custom_canvas_user_id not consistent?
LTI User/enrollment provisioning and synchronization
Thank you for looking into my question. Just to share some more context around, custom_canvas_user_id is a custom field/parameter we receive from Canvas over an LTI integration. I have an institution who asked me how/where they can locate the custom_canvas_user_id value for a user in Canvas. Thanks
Hi Abin, Welcome.
Did you see Adams response above with the 2 threads? Custom_canvas_user_id is referenced in both.
