      1. As admin, enable "Mobile services": Site administration ► Mobile app ► Mobile settings
      2. Create a user: user1
      3. Create a token for that user in Site administration ► Plugins ► Web services ► Manage tokens
      4. Do the following HTTP request (use the URL, wstoken and username of your site): 

        curl 'http://localhost/m/stable_master/webservice/rest/server.php?moodlewsrestformat=json' --data 'wsfunction=tool_mobile_call_external_functions&requests[0][function]=tool_mobile_get_public_config&requests[1][function]=core_user_get_users_by_field&requests[1][arguments]= {"field": "username", "values":["user1"]}&wstoken=2648258649bb6f8d60b7439dc02a0ecf' | jq

      1. Check the response contains a "responses" field with two items:
        1. The "data" of the 1st response contains the info of the site (encoded as JSON). The "error" is false.
        2. The "data" of the 2nd response contains the info of the user (encoded as JSON). The "error" is false.

       

      Note: if you don't have jq tool, you can use python -m "json.tool" instead. So, in linux you can install jq this way (sudo apt-get install jq), in Mac (brew install jq).
