Links to a Canvas course using sis_course_id

We'd like to present a student with a link to each of their enrolled Canvas courses from within their Student portal (our SIS). We don't store the Canavs IDs of courses in the SIS, but (obviously) do have the SIS id's. Is it a supported practice to provide links such as:

 

https://ourschool.instructure.com/courses/sis_course_id:foo

 

or ought we retrieve the Canvas course id to present links only as:

 

https://ourschool.instructure.com/courses/bar

 

I see that the former works, but I want to ensure that we aren't doing something that will be unsupported in the future.
