The Experience API (xAPI), is an e-learning software specification that allows learning content and learning systems to speak to each other in a manner that records and tracks all types of learning experiences. Learning experiences are recorded in a Learning Record Store (LRS). LRSs can exist within traditional learning management systems (LMSs) or on their own.
For more information on xAPI,
Captivate Prime has an inbuilt Learning Record Store. This LRS has the full capability of accepting xAPI statements from content that has been hosted within Captivate Prime. It even accepts xAPI statements that third parties generate. These xAPI statements are stored within Prime and they can then be exported outside Prime to be visualized into any third-party data warehousing system.
Increasingly there is a need to capture learning experiences of the end user which span across multiple systems. There is also a need to track the exact engagement of the learner with training content. It goes beyond Start, In Progress and Completion (which are the only attributes captured by SCORM).

Captivate Prime xAPI use OAuth 2.0 framework to authenticate and authorize your client applications. Once you register your application, you can get the clientId and clientSecret. Get URL is used in
GET https://captivateprime.adobe.com/oauth/o/authorize?client_id=<Enter your clientId>&redirect_uri=<Enter a url to redirect to>&state=<Any String data>&scope=<admin:xapi or learner:xapi>&response_type=CODE.
As an Author you can now choose xAPI module while creating courses to monitor user experience outside Prime. For example, you can use this feature to evaluate the activities of users on a third-party platform used for course consumption.
IRI for an activity is unique across an account. That means, two modules in Captivate Prime cannot have same IRI. A new IRI is generated in the following cases:
- When a course with xAPI module is shared across accounts.
- When a certification with xAPI module recurs
Points to note:
- Captivate Prime currently supports
only mboxas an identifier. Other identifiers including mboz_sha1, openid, account are not supported.
- The stateId and profileId is a UUID when used with Prime.
- PUT request does not overwrite the document for xAPIs agents/profile, activity/profile, and activity/state
Unidentifiedgroup is not supported in Actor.
- The parameter "related_activities" is not supported in
- The parameters 'format=ids' & 'format=canonical' is not supported in GET statements.
- Voiding of
xAPIstatement does not undo any actions that happened in Prime when the statement was posted.
The downloaded report fetches all the information posted by the Learner and Administrator for any statement.
Same reports can be
Log in as Integration Admin > Open FTP/Box connector > Select xAPI Activity report from the left pane> Choose to schedule/ generate a report.
- When only raw score is sent in xAPI statement without max score, Quiz score is not shown in LT.
- To get the percentage score in Prime, scaled scores are sent through xAPI.
