This document shows how to add and use Annoto as an external tool using XML.
External apps can also be configured using XML in sub-accounts.
Manually configuring an external app is an account permission. If you cannot configure an external app, this permission has not been enabled for your user role.
In Course Navigation, click the Settings link.
Click the Apps tab.
To configure an app, click the View App Configurations button.
Click the Add App button.
Select the Configuration Type drop-down menu and set the configuration type to Paste XML.
Enter the name of the app in the Name field  : Annoto
Enter the consumer key in the Consumer Key field  and the shared secret in the Shared Secret field .
This key and shared secret is provided by Annoto, If you do not have this information, please contact us [email protected]
In the XML Configuration field, paste the XML code.
The XML Code can be found in the following link:
Open it using a web browser (preferred Chrome) and just copy-and-paste it to the field.
Click the Submit button.
If the Annoto App has already been added in the account, Canvas verifies that you still want to install the app. To continue, click the Yes, Install Tool button.
Note: Verifications only take place in the same context for an existing external app (such as installing the same app multiple times in the root account).
If you need any additional information or have any questions, please contact us at Annoto Support
