        • Click on Site administration ► Plugins ► Web services ► Manage tokens
      4. Use the following CURL command to test if the webservice works as required. Please note that the `$MOODLE_URL` , `$wstoken` and `$courseid` are parameters that need to be filled by you.

        curl '$MOODLE_URL/webservice/rest/server.php?moodlewsrestformat=json' --data 'wsfunction=core_course_get_contents&wstoken=$wstoken&courseid=$courseid' --compressed | python -m "json.tool" 

      5. Check if inside modules we have in the structure the purpose values:
        • Forum: purpose = collaboration

    Description

      This is necessary for third-party plugins mostly (non-core ones)

      The core_course_get_contents() is the generic Web Service that looks more suitable for this.

      We just need to return the purpose by doing something like:
      >purpose = plugin_supports('mod', $mod->modname, FEATURE_MOD_PURPOSE, MOD_PURPOSE_OTHER),
