The Remote Learner Adobe Connect Pro activity module provides the officially sponsored integration method between Moodle and Adobe Connect Pro. It was developed in conjunction with the Remote-Learner development team and Adobe Inc. It is designed to simplify the use of synchronous events within Moodle. It provides a single sign on between the two systems with easy event creation and management.

The module allows users to create Adobe Connect Pro meetings by adding an activity instance and providing the meeting name, url (optional), start time, end time, meeting template and a public or private meeting setting.

There is also support for Moodle groups so that users who are only a part of a group can join meetings that are only for their Moodle group.

Any user who creates or joins a meeting will have their account created on the Adobe Connect server (if one doesn't exist) and they will be signed in automatically using HTTP header authentication. So as long as the user is logged into Moodle they will never have to enter in user credentials to get access to an Adobe Connect meeting.

This module creates 3 roles: Adobe Connect Host, Presenter and Participant in Moodle to reflect the roles on the Adobe Connect server. Users can be assigned these roles through Moodle and they will have the corresponding roles on the Adobe Connect server when they join.

The activity module will also display meeting recordings (if there are any) that are available.

Disclaimer:  If you have a Adobe Connect Pro hosted account the single sign-on or external authentication will not work; as Adobe has disabled external authentication for hosted account.

    After investigation I find a solution to my issue :

    I installed Adobeconnect (MOODLE_34_STABLE) from their github repository on an instance of moddle 3.6 and removed the body of the method called in the install.php from the adobeconnect folder.

    I just left in install.php : function xmldb_adobeconnect_install() {global $DB;}
    And moved the code in settings.php of the plugin and also added a condition to only check once at install :

    //Install for Adobeconnect
    $param = array('shortname' => 'adobeconnectpresenter');
    $mrole = $DB->get_record('role', $param);

    if (!$mrole){
    <> }

    And now When I initialize phpunit with (php admin/tool/phpunit/cli/init.php) - all unitary tests are rolling fine and plugin is working properly.

    @Cumali YAŞAR - if this can help you.

    Hello @ Bruno Lapierre ;
    First of all, thank you very much for your thought about helping me on Moodle. I am helping you at for free. I got Adobe Connect support from the university foundation. I didn't pay. I couldn't connect Adobe Connect to Moodle 3.6. I tried to do what you said on your website. However, I could not achieve integration. I downloaded it from Githup. But he keeps making mistakes. If you have time, can you publish help guide? Thank you again.

    Thanks @ ahmadi-akbar, The only problem between Moodle 3.6 and Adobe Connect is the Turkish Character problem. Users with the letters Ç, Ş, ş, ç, ğ, ü, Ü, ğ are having problems logging in. A solution to this needs help. How about the solution with UTF-8?

    I've install adobe connect 10.6 and when I want to make an activity for meeting, I get "Invalid call to role_assign(), roleid can not be empty"
    What's the problem.
    The test phase has been successfully passed.
    Thank's in advanced.

    Is this plugin going to be updated to be used with Moodle 3.7 / 3.8 ?

    this is just plain dangerous stuff.
    on moodle 3.8 it WILL crash your moodle site in under 1 second!
    there are plenty more plugins here, which definitely need a testing. but this one is simply dangerous for any novice moodle admin.

    No aconsejo instalarlo, tuve que eliminar desde la carpeta de mod, y luego desinstalar desde moodle, ya que me impidió el acceso con el usuario admin, uso la versión 3.9.1
