It is necessary to complete these steps in order to enable the Canvas File Picker for the Hypothesis LMS app.

Choose the API Key option after clicking “Developer Key”.

2. Fill out the Key Settings form

  • Give the key a sensible name and provide your email address
  • In the **Redirect URIs** field, add:
    https://lms.hypothes.is/canvas_oauth_callback

  • Leave blank the following fields:
    • **Redirect URI (Legacy)**

Make sure there are no extra spaces or characters copied and pasted here.

The ID (shown in the Details column) and Key (shown in a pop-up once you click the Show Key button) will correspond to the Canvas Developer ID and Canvas Developer Key fields in our form to generate credentials:
