LTi authenticator setup


I would like to use the ltiauthenticator for our jupyterhub environments.
I am running Z2JH in GCP.
The installation steps are a bit vague. I will write more detailed steps once I have this working.
Do you just add:
pip install jupyterhub-ltiauthenticator
to the singleuser image and configure the lti authenticator in the config.yaml file?

Provided you are using at least 0.7 the ltiauthenticator should already be installed in the hub.

and then in your config.yaml, your auth section looks like:

- “27”
type: “lti”
consumers: { “c3133bc65bd219795f42b8eaefb8f9aad4d9e341f48642175f25c488a406bb42”: “c0ae0d61db081e9bdc96716a7596094b37c83373eb296d3ae14b9cf6e3755c21”}

This example is from moodle, where the users are referenced by their moodle user id, to give that particular user administrator access to the jupyterhub environments. The consumer key and secret will need to be configured in the lti module of whatever external system you are integrating with.

Everything worked as expected thank you so much.
