Does the Blackboard in app browser have access to the camera?

Question asked by apandey on Jul 19, 2019

Hi there


We are trying to integrate a qr code scanner into an LTI tool.  Our tool link is going to need access to the phone's camera.  

When running on desktop, our tool successfully opens and starts scanning qr codes: 

And when we open the tool page in the phone's Chrome browser:


The problem arises when we attempt to open the tool in the Blackboard app.  The page seems to load normally at first. However, as soon as we try to access the device camera, the in app browser gives us an empty alert then redirects us to the Android app info page.


Is it possible for an LTI tool to access the device camera when rendered inside the Blackboard app?


Thanks in advance!
