Getting Started

The CollaborNation API is an HTTP-based RESTful API with token authorization. API request and response bodies can be formatted in either XML or JSON as specified by the client.

The CollaborNation API is flexible in its functionality and is capable of:

What you'll need before you start:

Contact a CypherWorx representative to provide these values.

API Tools

There are numerous tools available for developers to work with APIs. The CollaborNation API does not limit its usage and will work with most widely used API tools.

As a recommendation, we advise developers to try Postman due to its extensive capability.

API Requests

A simple request

GET https://collabornation.net/lms/api/0.06/user
GET https://collabornation.net/lms/api/0.06/user.json

Request with a body

PUT https://collabornation.net/lms/api/0.06/user/42

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<request xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
  <user>
    <id>42</id>
    <firstname>John</firstname>
    <lastname>Smith</lastname>
    <email>johnsmith@example.com</email>
  </user>
</request>
PUT https://collabornation.net/lms/api/0.06/user/42.json

{
  "user": {
    "id": "42",
    "firstname": "John",
    "lastname": "Smith",
    "email": "johnsmith@example.com"
  }
}

To construct a RESTful API request, combine these components:

Component Description
The HTTP Method
  • GET: Requests data from a resource.
  • POST: Submits data to a resource to process.
  • PUT: Updates a resource.
  • DELETE: Deletes a resource.
The URL to the API service https://collabornation.net/lms/api/X.XX where X.XX is your API version number
API Version The version of the API that your organization is consuming. The latest API version is 0.06.
The URI to the resource The resource to query, submit data to, update, or delete. For example, login/42.
A request body Required for many GET, POST, and PUT calls.

Example requests are displayed for XML and JSON.

API Versions

To ensure previous API connections remain undisrupted, the CollaborNation API may be updated with different versions to support more functionality. Please refer to the table for the differences between versions.

API Version Supported Functions
0.05 login, logout, course, report, record, grade, time, user, test, learn, my courses
0.06 login, logout, course, report, record, grade, time, user, test, learn, my courses, event

Output Formats

XML

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<response xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
  <foo xsi:nil="true"/>
</response>

XML (Extensible Markup Language) is the default output format for the CollaborNation API. The entire document must be contained within a single root element. The CollaborNation® API uses <response> as the root element to contain whatever is to be returned when responding to a request.

NULL values cannot be represented in XML; <foo></foo> and <foo/> both represent the same value, the empty string. Because of this, we use the XML Schema instance namespace which defines, among other things, a nil (NULL) attribute.

JSON

{
  "user": {
    "15": {"firstname":"John" /* ... */},
    "26": {"firstname":"Jacob" /* ... */}
  }
}

JSON is supported in the CollaborNation API. The output can be formatted for JSON by doing one of the following:

Please note, you must remove any / that appears at the end of a request URL before appending the .json. If both are specified and conflicting, the file extension takes precedence over the HTTP header.

Elements in arrays and objects are uniquely identified by their keys, meaning that sibling elements cannot share the same key. Because of this, any object with multiple instances of one type of field will have that field as an object with numeric keys.

API Admin Settings

Once CypherWorx sets up your organization with API access, a CypherWorx employee will then set individual accounts to have API Admin Settings access. This is a role separate from a site admin that grants the account the ability to make API calls and to view the API Admin Settings page. This page can be found under Admin Tools.

API Admin Settings block

API Credentials

At the top of the API Admin Settings page is:

This is the username, password, and URL used in your application to connect to the CollaborNation API services.

API Admin Credentials

Courses

To access courses via the API, organizations must register the courses via the API dashboard. This gives organizations the ability to assign a unique ID which links the CollaborNation course with your organization's system.

To register a course for the API, go to the API Admin Settings page, then click on Register a course with this API client.

Adding a course for the API requires two fields.

Adding an API course

The registered courses will then appear in the Courses table. There are a few fields:

API course listing

Users

User accounts can be created in a variety of ways, including letting individuals self-register into the site, having admins create accounts manually, or creating accounts through the API. If an account is created through the API, it gives developers access to features such as single sign-on.

Once an account is created with the API, they will appear on the Users page. This page displays the following details:

Image of API Users

It's also possible to add API users through the website by clicking on Register a user with this API client.

Adding an API User

Access Log

API calls made to CollaborNation is viewable in the Access Log section. This can be helpful for troubleshooting if the endpoints are being sent and received successfully, and if there are any error messages. The log is retained for the last 30 days.

The User endpoint pertains to managing the users in your site. This section outlines how to create, retrieve, and update users.

The CollaborNation API gives developers single sign-on capability. To do so, you will want to:

CollaborNation also has other single sign-on capabilities, such as through SAML 2.0. Please refer to our Integrations section for more details.

Endpoint Logistics

Element Data Type Description
token string A 64-character hexadecimal string that uniquely identifies a user session. This token needs to be included as GET or POST data in any link the end user uses to access the LMS (the learn and my-courses endpoints). This token should be considered private, as the first user to use it will be logged into the corresponding user account on CollaborNation. Because of this, POST is preferred, so the end user doesn’t see the token unless manually inspecting the request.

API Responses

The CollaborNation API uses the following status codes for requests:

Status Code Description Cause
200 OK The request succeeded. n/a
201 Created A POST method successfully created a resource. n/a
400 Bad Request Request is not well-formed, syntactically incorrect, or violets schema. The server could not understand the request. Indicates one of these conditions:
  • The data is not in the expected format.
  • A required field is not available.
  • A data validation error occurred.
401 Unauthorized Authentication failed due to invalid authentication credentials. The request requires authentication and the caller did not provide valid credentials.
403 Forbidden Authorization failed due to insufficient permissions. The client is not authorized to access this resource although it might have valid credentials.
404 Not Found The specified resource does not exist. The server did not find anything that matches the request URI. Either the URI is incorrect or the resource is not available. For example, no data exists in the database at that key.
405 Method Not Allowed The server does not implement the requested HTTP method. The service does not support the requested HTTP method.
415 Unsupported Media Type The server does not support the request payload’s media type. The API cannot process the media type of the request payload. For example, this error occurs if the client sends a Content-Type: application/xml request header but the API can only accept application/json request payloads.
429 Too Many Requests The rate limit has been reached. Blocked due to rate limiting. The rate limit for the user, application, or token exceeds a predefined value.
500 Internal Server Error An internal server error has occurred. A system or application error occurred. Although the client appears to provide a correct request, something unexpected occurred on the server.
501 Not Implemented The request method is not supported by the server and cannot be handled. n/a
