Re-posted from the behind the blackboard support case
Case #02477752 - Need credentials to access Collaborate Ultra REST API
as suggested by
Tier 3 Support Engineer
Dear Blackboard Team
We need access to the test environment in order to progress our custom integration with your service specifically utilising the API documented at https://community.blackboard.com/external/4251 (details provided to us by Peter Hirst). It would appear that we will need a collaborate rest key and secret key pair. Presumably there is also some kind of web log in you can provide us with for the test environment where we will be able to inspect the outcome of our API calls for correctness?
The API credentials would appear to need to meet the requirements detailed at https://community.blackboard.com/docs/DOC-3115-using-json-web-tokens-to-authorize-and-authenticate-to-blackboard-collaborate
It would also be helpful if you could give some indication as to when the REST API is likely to be available for production use.
