How do I manage an Edu App Center allow list in Canvas?

If your institution is using an Edu App Center allow list, you can manage your allow list directly in Canvas. To apply the allow list, you will need to know the API token created for your Edu App Center organization. The access token syncs the External Apps list at both the account and course levels to only show apps from the Edu App Center allow list set up for the organization.

Admins can manage the app list at any time to remove or replace an access token. When an account or subaccount does not include an access token, the External Apps list displays the default app list provided by Canvas. Allow lists can only be managed at the account and subaccount levels.

Canvas only accepts one API token for an organization. A token applied at the account level automatically filters down to to all subaccounts. The Edu App Center supports creating multiple tokens for an organization, but each token directs to the same allow list. If you want to create separate allow lists that apply to individual subaccounts, you'll need to create additional organizations in the Edu App Center and create API tokens for each allow list.

Note: Apps added to an EduAppCenter allowlist may take up to 24 hours to display in Canvas.
