      1. As admin or teacher, create a course with a database
      2. Enable "Mobile services": Plugins ► Web Services ► Mobile
      3. Create a Token for the Moodle main admin user:
        • Click on Site administration ► Plugins ► Web services ► Manage tokens
      4. Next, you can do a CURL REST call simulating a WS client.
        • You need to replace the wstoken and URL.
        • You need to replace also the courseids value to match the course you created in the first step.

          curl 'http://localhost/m/stable_master/webservice/rest/server.php?moodlewsrestformat=json' --data 'courseids%5B0%5D=4&wsfunction=mod_data_get_databases_by_courses&wstoken=ffbe3a3002f235bf9d01fd9369e10b66'

          Note, you can use jsonlint.com to validate and format the json returned string or append "| python -m json.tool" to automatically format the command output

      5. Confirm that
        • The json returned contains the database complete information (all the info).
        • You don't see any warnings in the json response
