Reproducing the Issue

  1. As a user, navigate to the Item and attempt to launch the assoicated content
  2. The '401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials' error is generated


Content URL is hosted on 3rd party server


As the content is hosted on a 3rd party server, LMS cannot access it and additional credentials are needed to access it. It may be possible to verify this by launching the content url directly in a browser to confirm the issue

Please work with your content vendor to resolve as this isn't something supported by LMS.
