To create a scoped key

Kaltura is using API keys to retrieve information about course permissions to provide the "Publish to a Media Gallery from My Media" feature. If you would like to use a scoped key instead of a regular API key, please use the following steps.

  1. Log into Canvas to create the new key.
  2. Provide the key with the following permissions (These are the scopes that Kaltura tools use):
    1. url:GET|/api/v1/courses
    2. url:GET|/api/v1/courses/:id
  3. Select a name and an owner email
  4. Under the URIs ("Redirect URIs" and "Redirect URl (Legacy)") enter your KAF URL starting with "https://". e.g: "https://1234.kaf.kaltura.com/"
  5. Grab the app ID and key.
  6. Enter the information in the KAF Admin 'Canvas' module.
    1. Set "useScopedKey" to Yes.
    2. Fill in the customAppId.
    3. Fill in the customAppKey.
