Do you see this error in your LMS? There are some common causes you can check before you open an InSpace support ticket.

  1. Are you correctly signed in to your LMS? Please try signing out and in again to refresh your integration.
  2. Do you have two or more 2 URLs for your LMS? For example, some institutions have vanity URLs or are using redirects, in addition to multiple instances.

Even typing ‘http:’ instead of ‘https:’ can cause this error to appear.
