Using Canvas API to generate a Canvas API Access Token

Question asked by Douglas Tan on Apr 14, 2016

Is there a Canvas API method I can call that will generate a Canvas API Access Token based on an user identity I passed in?

 

The scenario I have is, we have a list of system level users (used for integration with other systems/tools at the university).
They are Canvas users i.e. they each have a username and password.
During Canvas refresh on test and beta, we have to regenerate their API Access Token by manually login to each user, and go settings, click the button to generate a new token.

 

Now is it possible with an Account Admin Access Token, I can call the Canvas API to generate these new Access Tokens, so I can automate this process with some code?

 

Thank you

Douglas
