Auth LTI integration

What is it?#

IMS Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) is a standard set of specifications for allowing third party learning applications (or "tool providers") to integrate with educational platforms (or "tool consumers").

LTI lets you easily integrate external tools (automatic login) into your learning management system (LMS) and allow to user connect with the store like SSO (single sign on) without complete a form.

A note about privacy.
As standard for LTI, our platform only requires the user_id parameter to uniquely identify the user. But does not require the lis_person_contact_email_primary parameter which could be considered personally identifiable information, this parameter is optional and its use will depend on the customer's use case. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any doubt.

If the learning platform give specific access to books or plans, the user with user and password created can access to all plan or all publications?

The user only has access to a plan assigned. In case that configuration has access to all publications, only can use this access using the login LTI.

Users can access using other devices?
