Yes. You should place your code in install.php. Take a look into structure of moodle plugin
General developer forum
Autocreate webservice token upon plugin installaion
Is there a working example I can look at?
1. Create webservice with necessary functions
Do I use functions in $CFG->dirroot . '/webservice/lib.php' for that?
Like creating new class $webservice = new webservice();
and then using $webservice->add_external_service(...); or some other way is expected?
2. Create a special user with relevant capabities
I stuck here. Do I use 'user/lib.php' functions?
user_create_user(...); - this one or other way is expected?
And which function do I use to give a new user required capabilites..
Example would be great...
Read this document
A web service is defined by adding services.php to your plugin (as outlined in the link above)
Example of that can be found here
Use this for creating user
$userdata = [ 'auth' => 'manual', 'confirmed' => true, 'username' => 'foo', 'password' => 'foo', 'firstname' => 'foo', 'lastname' => 'faa', 'email' => 'firstname.lastname@example.org' ]; $userid = user_create_user($userdata);
For assigning capabilities use API assign_capability.
