I have been using the core functionality in Blackboard via Sys Admin --> Building Blocks --> LTI Tool Providers.
This declares the key and secret at system level with the Provider Domain and then I created the Placement which includes the 'Tool Provider URL' . I tried using 'http://ltiapps.net/test/tp.php' as the Tool Provider url but it won't accept this as it doesn't match the domain.
I've have also tried setting up the domain without a placement and then entering the launch url (https://webpa.bournemouth.ac.uk/mod/lti/index.php), key and secret directly into a course get the same cookie string mentioned previously.
I've setup an LTI previously for BigBlueButton using the LTI Provider and Placement which has worked fine. The key difference that I can see is that the Tool Provider URL for BigBlueButton linked through to a tool.xml file rather than index.php.

Try replacing the launch URL with http://ltiapps.net/test/tp.php to see if it is the Blackboard or WebPA end which is causing the problem. I suspect it is something to do with the way you have configured it in Blackboard. Are you using the core LTI functionality in Learn 9 or the BasicLTI Building Block? Have you set up the key and secret at the system (domain) level or entered them with the launch URL within a course? Are you using an LTI tool placement? My suggestion (when it is not working) would be to start simple and enter all the details within the content item in the course.
