Installation and setup

Setting up a user for the integration

Due to security reasons, it's recommended to have a separate user with special permissions for the integration.

  1. Create a new user, for example, examus. To do that, go to Site administration → Users → Accounts → Add a new user. Fill the required fields. Create a password for the user.
  2. Create a new role for the integration, for example, webservice. Go to Site administration → Users → Permissions → Define roles. Click the Add a new role button. Choose a role archetype Authenticated user as a basis. Click Continue.
  3. Select the context System where this role can be assigned. In the bottom part of the page, allow the following capabilities:
    • local/rcommon:authenticate ???
    • Use REST protocol
      Fill in all other required fields: Short name, Custom full name. Click the Create this role button.
  4. Go to Site administration → Users → Permissions → Assign system roles. Choose the role created in the previous step (webservice). Add the previously created examus user to the Existing users field.

Enabling web services

  1. Go to Site administration → Advanced features. Enable web services. Save changes.
  2. Go to Site administration → Plugins → Web services → Manage protocols. Enable the REST protocol. Save changes.

Creating a web service token

  1. Go to Site administration → Plugins → Web services → Manage tokens, click Add.
  2. Add a token for the service Examus for the previously created user examus (or Admin User). Leave the IP restriction field empty.
  3. Send the token to Examus. We will use this token for integration.

Creating a new OAuth client

The new client will be used by Examus proctoring service to authenticate your users.

  1. Please contact us to get your 'Redirect URL'.
  2. Go to Site administration → Server → OAuth provider settings, click Add new client. You can use any Client identifier, for example, examus. Paste the received 'Redirect URL'. Save changes.

    странный плагин. Вроде бы российская компания и разработчик с русскими именем и фамилией. А вот после установки его в соответствии с вышеуказанной инструкций и генерацией и регистрацией web service token вы обнаружите, что ваш сайт постоянно опрашивается через web service с адреса и похожих на него, принадлежащих Amazon Technologies Inc., Inc., Amazon Data Services NoVa.
