How do I obtain a Canvas Data 1 API access token in the Canvas Data Portal?
Canvas Data 1 will be deprecated on December 31, 2023. Learn more about accessing data using Canvas Data 2.
The Canvas Data API allows you to get information about or download Canvas Data files.
Any Canvas Data admin can generate API credentials, but the credentials are shared between all admin users in that account. If you would like to grant access to other users or third-party partners to download files via the API, you can generate credentials and securely pass them to those users. However, if you need to revoke access for a user, you will need to regenerate the credentials and securely distribute the credentials again.
Copy the API Key and API Secret. If you return to the Credentials Portal, you will be able to see the API Key but not the API Secret.
