    The /contact/enrolment/verifyCertificate/ API endpoint has now been developed to allow verification of a certificate issued from aXcelerate. Please see our API documentation (https://tst.axcelerate.com.au/apidocs/home/index) for more information.

    Yes this would be great feature. ASQA's email also goes on to say that a digital signature should include be used on PDF's. Is this the case with aXcelerate?

    Even if the QR Code is not available, even functionality to be able to Authenticate Certificates through the API where you are able to search the candidates surname and certificate number and TOID from the certificate and the system authenticates it as a valid Statement of Attainment, etc. This could be RTO specific, or even Axcelerate wide, so you can easily validate a certificate issued by any RTO using Axcelerate.

    I believe that there are privacy issues associated with allowing access to quals via a public web page.
    We use an embedded watermark on our certificates which prevents them being copied but a digital signature would also be good.

    We just came across certificates that have been issued with a QR code and thought that was a great idea. The QR code linked to a site that verified the certificate. We would support the idea of having QR codes on certificates if this was possible. Otherwise is there a way we can put a link to verify on the certificate using the endpoint above? Thanks, Helen

    Hi I have come across from a place where QR codes were on our certificates and I would've thought axcelerate would have this feature. Are you able to please implement this soon? 

    Thanks kindly

    Hi Axcelerate Support. The API to verify a certificate gives the folloiwng results

    GET /api/contact/enrolment/verifyCertificate/contact/enrolment/verifyCertificate/2951342 HTTP/1.1
    apitoken: <redacted>
    wstoken: <redacted>
    Host: admin.axcelerate.com.au
     
    HTTP/1.1 200 OK     <  This shonw it connects OK>>>
    ax-clientid: 11058619
    ax-clientid: 11058619
    ax-section: 1|123
    Content-Type: application/json;charset=utf-8
    Date: Sat, 19 Oct 2019 10:03:28 GMT
    Server: Apache/2.4.29 (Ubuntu)
    Set-Cookie: AX-CLIENTID=11058619;Path=/
    X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN
    Content-Length: 64
    Connection: keep-alive

    {"RESULT":false,"MSG":"Certificate verification unsuccessful."}
     
    The API connects and works, however give a false certificate verification. Are we doing something wrong or is the system not working correctly ?

    Anymore discussion on this? This is certainly something that would be of high value.

    Hi Paul Barry, thanks for the link. 

    Can you explain what the user sees and/or what information they get once they submit the certificate number?

    We had a WordPress plugin developed for this. Can be viewed at https://certificates.paradisefirstaid.com.au/ can give you details of the developer if you are interested,

    Hi Andy, you mentioned you had a wordpress plugin developed for your certificate verification - is that because the API would only be supported with a wordpress plugin?

    Hi Kathleen,

    The aXcelerate API is not restricted to any specific programing language or platform.

    Thanks for the reply George - not a technical user myself so wasn't sure if there was any functionality outside the online enrolment form that requires wordpress :)

    Hi Kathleen, we had WordPress plugin developed because our site is a WordPress site. I know of some guys that didn't have a wordpress site and just hosted the plugin on a subdomain WordPress site. If you are interested email jeremy@enhanceindustries.com.au . I really don't know why aXcelerate haven't integrated this in their current WordPress plugin or developed one just for this??

    Hi All,

    We are intending on completing a certificate validation feature very soon. We're doing this as part of implementing QR Codes on certificates.

    There will be a public page to verify certificates through QR Codes, but also by certificate number. We will have this released by the end of the year.

    Cheers,
    Rod.

    Sounds great, Rod.

    Will it be a generic aXcelerate page? Or will it be RTO specific so we can brand it?

    Hi Tomos,

    It will be an aXcelerate public page. Initially, it's unlikely that it would include your branding.

    Cheers,
    Rod.

    Sorry Rod, just one more question. Do you know if this feature is likely to be included in the standard package? Or will it cost extra?

    Andy and Paul, do your verification pages add a file note to aXcelerate to log the verification of a certificate?

    Rod, will the aXcelerate verification have this functionality?

    Thanks

    Hi Philippa,

    No sorry, we will not be logging any notes each time a certificate number has been checked for validity.

    Cheers,
    Rod.

    To piggy back off Philippa's, is that possible through the current API method if we were to build it ourselves?

    Great idea, Philippa.

    Hi Tomos,

    This would be possible if you were to create a custom API solution.

    You would take the contactID parameter returned from the /contact/enrolment/verifyCertificate/ endpoint and use this to assign the contact note using the /contact/note/ endpoint.

    We built our own certificate verification plugin for Wordpress using the API however there is a major flaw with the API - it returns a 'valid' response when checking a certificate number that has been cancelled in aXcelerate. Reported this to aXcelerate a long time ago but to my understanding it has not been fixed.
