I've recently updated the moodle sgoauth server files to include api calls that we needed for an integration project we are currently doing.  For this integration we also needed authorization tokens to be granted automatically so I added support for specifying autoauthorize in the datamodel.

While testing, I encountered a bug on the elgg consumer code that prevented the cron jobs from deleting stale tokens so I fixed that as well.

Download the updated code.


Here is the link to the post announcing the first release.

Installation process

I am trying to test your plugin with Moodle 2.3.1 and Wordpress 3.4.1

1) Set up in Wordpress
there are 4 fields that need to be filled in, Consumer Key, Secret, OAuth Server Base URL and OAuth Server Name. Where do I get that information in moodle?

2) at the step 3 on how to install the server.

"... At this point the necessary database tables have been setup.

You'll need to create records for your consumers by manually
  inserting into the database.  Some sample sql insert commands are:

  For wordpress:

  mysql> insert into oauth_consumers (name, callbackurl, cancelurl, secret, consumerkey, timecreated, timemodified)
          values ('Wordpress', 'http://my.wordpress.url/wp-load.php?action=sg_oauth&service=logincallback',
                  'http://my.wordpress.url/wp-login.php', 'mysecretstring', 'mywordpressconsumerkey',
                  unix_timestamp(current_timestamp()), unix_timestamp(current_timestamp()));    ....."

It is not clear for me, Please can you explain it.

Thanks in advance

updated code


You might want to download the updated code from github instead -- https://github.com/solutiongrove/sg-moodle-oauth  There should be instructions in the readme file.
