Elluminate Live! (Blackboard Collaborate)) is software for virtual online classrooms. It is suitable for meetings, demonstrations web conferences, seminars and general training and support. Elive is a set of Perl bindings and definitions for entities in the Elluminate Live! Manager (ELM) database. You can, for example, use it to create meetings (sessions) or manage users, groups and meeting participants. Elive connects to Elluminate Live! servers via http or https and utilises the Command Toolkit services SOAP ('default' adapter). Some additional configuration may be required on your Elluminate Live! server. Please see the Server Configuration section. COMPATIBILITY The Elive distribution supports only self hosted Elluminate Live! servers that are running Elluminate Live! Manager (ELM). - works best with ELM versions 3.0 - 3.5.0 and Elluminate Live! (Blackboard Collaborate) versions 9.5 - 11.1.2 - does not support access to externally hosted servers deployed with SAS (Session Administration System). INSTALLATION To install this module, run the following commands: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install SERVER CONFIGURATION You'll need to edit your site instance configuration to provide SDK access to one or more users. To do this, firstly stop the site using the Elluminate Live Instance Manager (http://yourserver/elmcontrol). Then you'll need to edit the configuration.xml for the site instance. (*) Under Linux, the web application root is: /opt/ElluminateLive/manager/tomcat/webapps (*) or under Windows, it's: C:/Program Files/ElluminateLive/manager/tomcat/webapps (*) The actual configuration for the root instance is the sub-path: ROOT/WEB-INF/resources/configuration.xml (*) or for any additional sites built with the instance manager: mysite/WEB-INF/resources/configuration.xml Edit the file and add an entry for the SDK user to the security section: <elm> ... <proxymanager enable="true"> <proxy name="web" ..> ... <security adapter-name="default"> <permissions> <role id="0"> <allow command="*" /> </role> <!-- ++ ADD THIS --> <user name="some_user"> <allow command="*" /> </user> <!-- -- ADD THIS --> </permissions> ... </proxy> ... </proxymanager> LIVE TESTING There are additional live tests in t/soap-*.t and t/script-*t. By default, these are either skipped or run offline as mock tests. These may be run against a live server by setting up the environment variables, and running tests, as shown below: perl Makefile.PL make export ELIVE_TEST_URL=http://sdk_user@some_server.com/some_instance export ELIVE_TEST_PASS=some_password make test There's also some additional environment variables that may be set to extend the range of tests: ELIVE_TEST_PRELOAD_SERVER_PATH - absolute path of an existing preload file on the server. Set this to enable testing of the Elive::Entity::Preload->import_from_server() method. The following enable some of the more invasive tests: ELIVE_TEST_USER_UPDATES - set this to true to enable insert and update of user accounts on a live site (t/soap-user.t). ELIVE_TEST_GROUP_UPDATES - set this to true to enable insert and update of groups on a live site (t/soap-group.t). ELIVE_TEST_REPORT_UPDATES - set this to true to enable insert and update of reports on a live site (t/soap-report.t). The User and Group update tests can only be run on sites that have not been configured for LDAP. WARNING: Live testing will both create and delete various entities instances. For this reason you should be wary of running the live tests on production sites. Consider restricting any live testing to designated development and test sites, or newly created site instances! POST INSTALLATION The elive_query script can be used to check basic operation of Elive and access to your Elluminate server(s). % elive_query --user some_account http://some_server.com/some_site Where 'some_account' has been configured for SDK access. You will need to enter a password. You should then get: connecting to http://some_server.com/some_site...done Elive query 1.xx (Elluminate Live 10.y.z) - type 'help' for help elive> You can then try a simple query: elive> select * from users See also elive_raise_meeting. This is a utility script that creates meetings on an Elluminate server. % elive_raise_meeting http://some_user@myserver/mysite -name 'Test' TROUBLESHOOTING 'User [<username>], not permitted to access the command <command>' -------------------------------------------------------------------- You are connected to the SOAP services with an account that has not been setup for full SDK access. Please see the Server Configuration section above. 'Unable to determine a command for the key Xxxxx' ------------------------------------------------- This may indicate that some command definitions are missing from your Elluminate configuration. This can be prone to likely to happen with an Elluminate instance that has been through several Elluminate upgrades. You can use the installed script elive_lint_config to check for missing commands. % cd /opt/ElluminateLive/manager/tomcat/webapps % elive_lint_config WEB-INF/resources/configuration.xml missing 'default' adapter command: getUser missing 'default' adapter command: deletePreload missing 'default' adapter command: listPreloads The missing commands can be added to your configuration file. For example, if elive_lint_config returned the error: "missing 'default' adapter command: getUser" You'll need to first stop Elluminate services. Save a backup copy of configuration.xml Then you can add an adapter entry can be added to the list of adapters. E.g., to add the getUser adapter: <elm> ... <adapters> <adapter name="default" class="com.elluminate.adapter.CommandAdapter" adapterType="ELM"> <commands> ... <!-- ++ ADD COMMANDS HERE --> <command name="getUser" class="com.elluminate.adapter.command.GetUserCommand" /> <!-- -- ADD COMMANDS HERE --> LDAP AUTHENTICATION Elluminate Live! can also be configured to use an LDAP repository for user authentication. Users and groups can be retrieved or listed, but cannot be updated. SUPPORT AND DOCUMENTATION See the Elluminate Live documentation. In particular, this package follows the entities and relationships described in DatabaseSchema.pdf. You will find a copy on the installation disk; or if you have access to the server, you will will typically find this in /opt/Elluminate/documentation. After installing, you can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command. perldoc Elive You can also look for information at: RT, CPAN's request tracker http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Elive AnnoCPAN, Annotated CPAN documentation http://annocpan.org/dist/Elive CPAN Ratings http://cpanratings.perl.org/d/Elive Search CPAN http://search.cpan.org/dist/Elive/ COPYRIGHT AND LICENCE Copyright (C) 2009-2012 David Warring This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself.
