With this integration and the current OpenMeetings version 3.+ you can create different types of rooms and separated users in OpenMeetings with the access-level "SOAP-Only". The "SOAP-Only" user can do exactly what is needed to run the integration but nothing more. This does result in no need for any OpenMeetings Admin-User in the Moodle Module config! So you can better protect your OpenMeetings server from non-authorized access via the SOAP Gateway and no need to share confidential account data. "SOAP-Only" users can not login to OpenMeetings administration or manipulate user accounts via SOAP. OpenMeetings also supports access via https and ldap-/Active Directory-Integration.

The latest OpenMeetings Moodle Module is for Moodle 3.0 and is compatible only with OpenMeetings 3.1.x. It is recommended to update to the latest version of OpenMeetings.

Sample Video showing the installation of the Moodle Module and integration with new access level:

The features of the OpenMeetings Moodle Plugin:
- Openmeetings rooms can be displayed inside a Moodle course in a frame, in a new window or can occucy the entire window
- Secure "SOAP-Only" user access level (see documentation on top)
- 3 Moderation Types for Conference Rooms (Moodle admins, teachers and course creators are automatically a moderator):
Moderation Type A) Participants need to wait till the teacher enters the room
Moderation Type B) Participants can already start (first User in room becomes moderator)
Moderation Type C) Every participant is automatically moderator when he/she enters the room
- 3 Room Types (Conference, Interview & Webinar)
- New Flag "Allow Recording": You can set in the room configuration now a flag that controls if the recording button is available or not
- Moodle Module languages: German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Brazilian (OpenMeetings itself has around 30 languages)
- Clear and restructure conference creation form for Moodle moderators

    Hello Prakash,

    at first: You have java installed?
    And secondly: please note that the OM 3.1.1 release contains screen-sharing application signed with self-signed certificate due to https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-11384.
    To use screen-sharing application with modern Java, please add OM site to the list of java security exceptions by running $JAVA_HOME/bin/ControlPanel.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    I am having an issue where separate Openmeetings in different courses are seeing the same chat history. Is there any way for moderators to clear the history? When I enter a room via the OpenMeetings console itself, the chat is a static pane with the option to clear. However, via Moodle, the chat is a dropdown, without the ability to clear. I am using Moodle 3.0 with the latest version of the plugin and OpenMeetings on CentOS 6.8.

    Hello Bryce,
    I am using openmeetings in version 3.1.2, moodle in version 3.0 and the om moodle plugin in version 2.0.0.5 on debian. I can create openmeeting rooms in seperate moodle courses and have different chat log. And I have the ability to clear the chat on the right hand site. So I can delete old chat logs via moodle.
    Greetings,
    Michael

    That's what I expect, but it isn't happening. Are you using the "soapadmin" in the plugin settings as shown in the video tutorial? If not, then what account are you using in the settings? When I try multiple OpenMeetings activities in Moodle, I see them as separate rooms in the OpenMeetings admin dashboard, however all see the exact same chat log and uploaded files. It's acting like they're all sharing the same chat room.

    Yes I am using the soapadmin user to connect from moodle to om

    Then I must be doing something wrong, since I don't see the "soap admin" role as shown in the tutorial, I had to guess where it might be.

    OK, I think I am starting to discover the issue. Is there a global chat that always shows? Even when I disable chat in the activity settings, a pop-up chat is available on the bottom right corner. It doesn't match the chat pane in the meetings session. I also removed all permissions from my "soapadmin" user except for Login and Soap.

    I am trying to share a screenshot of the issue, let's see if the image uploaded to my Moodle profile will work. This screenshot shows the chat pane in the session empty, yet there is a blue "popup" chat window that only appears via a Moodle OpenMeetings activity:
