+\item Accept a username provided in LTI launch of deep-linked URL without re-authentication
+For deep-link access to a specific folder (or resource) in LON-CAPA, mediated by LTI launch from a different system, the signed payload included on launch can include the username of the authenticated user who followed a link in another system.  Whether such a username will be accepted, and a session launched for that username in LON-CAPA, or whether the user will be prompted to log-in to LON-CAPA in order to access the deep-linked resource(s) depends on the ``Use identity'' setting in effect for the current course.  If the domain default is set to ``No'', then a Course Coordinator will not be given the option to set ``Use identity'' when configuring Link Protector(s) in a course, and all users will need to log-in to LON-CAPA to complete the launch process.
