Can I reuse the Consumer Key and Shared Secret?
For each Canvas-Flipgrid account pair, the same Consumer Key and Shared Secret can be reused for all Courses within the Canvas account. With different Canvas or Flipgrid accounts, however, you'll need to generate a new Key and Secret for each pair.
- For every course in the same Canvas account that's connected to the same Flipgrid account
- When connecting the same Canvas account to different Flipgrid accounts
- When connecting the same Flipgrid account to different Canvas accounts
