Hey, School Admin! Glad you're here. We're excited to help you connect your Brightspace to a learning app.
Integrating is a breeze and should take five minutes or less.
Two quick things before we get started:
1. You must be a Brightspace Administrator to complete the integration process. Brightspace administrators will have a "Manage Extensibility" option in their settings menu.
2. Have you connected a learning app to Edlink before? If so, skip to step 2 (Completing the Integration). Yay!
Step 1: Adding Edlink as a REST API connection.
Add Edlink as a REST API connection in your organization’s Brightspace environment. To do this, log into your Brightspace admin account and click the settings menu, followed by “Manage Extensibility,” “OAuth 2.0.” and “Register an App.”
Fill out the form:
Application name: Edlink
Redirect URI: https://ed.link/api/authentication/brightspace
orgunits:course:read orgunits:coursetemplate:read organizations:organization:read content:completions:read,write content:modules:read content:toc:read content:topics:read,write core:*:* enrollment:orgunit:read grades:*:* role:detail:* users:userdata:read
Access Token Lifetime: 3600
Prompt for User Consent: False (Uncheck this box)
Enable Refresh Tokens: True (Check this box)
Non-commercial Developer: True (Check this box)
Step 2: Completing the integration
The learning app that you want to connect to should have sent you an integration link that looks like this: https://ed.link/integrate/abc456789-efg456-123456
You got that? Great! Click it. Then follow the instructions to create an Edlink account and complete the integration. Note: if you've connected an app to Edlink before, just log in.
If you don't have the link, let us know by reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll help you get it.
If you still have questions, please contact our support team at email@example.com and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
