How do I import a Canvas badge?

The import badge feature can be helpful if you wish to award the same set of badges on different regional Canvas Badges servers and in other situations where different issuers may be required to award the same badge.

  1. While logged into your Canvas Badges account, select the Issuers tab from the top navigation bar.
  2. Select the issuer you would like to import your badge to from the list.
  3. Select the box with the ellipsis to the right of the create badge button and then select Import badge.
Importing a badge to an issuer
  1. In a different tab or window, find the badge you wish to import. This can be from a different regional server location, the same server but a different issuer, or a different Open Badge compliant badging platform.
  2. Save or copy the badge image, public URL or JSON from an awarded badge. The image from a badge from a different issuer will not contain the badge metadata necessary to replace a badge. An awarded badge image is needed, or the public page URL or JSON.
  3. Go back to the tab containing the issuer you wish to update.
  4. Paste or upload the badge image, URL or JSON in the appropriate field. Select Continue.

  2. You'll now be on the badge details page for the badge that you imported.
