Upon clicking on the link, Brainfuse will decrypt the hash using the Tool Secret to verify that the request is valid. The key should be kept in a safe place and should never be added to any entry that could be passed in the URL.
During the setup process you will have to specify that the user ID is required by the tool. You will have to follow the Basic LTI setup screen instructions on how to turn this option on.
Value for the User ID field
The value for the user ID could be any alpha numeric field that will be unique for each student. The value should be unique even when the student moves from one semester to the next or from one year to the next.
Please check that the user's email field is required by the tool. This is important in order to make sure that the student receives notifications for various Brainfuse services, including our Writing Lab, 24x7 Question Center, and upcoming Scheduled Sessions.
