How to: Configure D2L Integration

The Tegrity / D2L integration is based on posting a single-sign-on (SSO) link in each desired course in D2L. Integrating Tegrity and D2L consists of the following steps:

  • Adding a Custom AAIRS Authorization Connector in Tegrity for D2L
  • Adding the Tegrity SSO link to either (a) one course (on a course by course basis) or (b) to a widget that can be added to the default home page of all courses.


Each step is described below.

Add a Custom Authorization AAIRS Connector in Tegrity for D2L

The custom authorization connector allows Tegrity to know how to process the information sent from D2L when a user clicks the Tegrity SSO link in a course.

  • From the Tegrity Admin page, click ‘Manage AAIRS’
  • Edit the Authorization settings
  • Drag the ‘Custom’ connector from the available to currently used connectors
  • Configure the Custom connector as follows:
  • NOTE: Replace “NNNN-NNNN-NNNN” with the Tegrity customer number associated with your institution’s Tegrity service
  • Click Save.
  • Click Save and Continue.
