EOX core build-status

Eox-core (A.K.A. Edunext Open extensions) is an openedx plugin, for the edx-platform that adds multiple API endpoints in order to extend the functionality of the edx-platform and avoid changing the base code directly. These API endpoints includes bulk creation of pre-activated users (for example, skip sending an activation email), enrollments and pre-enrollment operations.


  1. Add this plugin in your Tutor config.yml in the OPENEDX_EXTRA_PIP_REQUIREMENTS variable.
  2. Save your configuration with tutor config save.
  3. Build your open edx image with tutor images build openedx.
  4. Launch your platform with tutor local launch.

Note: To use all the features, you need to have the tutor-forum plugin and the eox-tenant plugin.


  • Support redirections with middlewares.
  • Add pipelines to be used with openedx-filters.
  • Add a group of APIs.

Dependency Management

EOX core now follows OEP-18 so the correct way to update dependencies is to run make upgrade inside your virtualenv.

Integrations with third party services

The plugin offers some integrations listed below:

  1. Sentry: This service allows to track the errors generated on edx-platform. Check more details in To enable the integration, follow the steps below:
    • Install the plugin with Sentry support (extras_require [sentry]).
    • Sign up/in to your sentry account and create a new Django application integration.
    • Get the DSN for your integration. This is an unique identifier for your application.
    • Setup the following configuration values for edx-platform:

      EOX_CORE_SENTRY_EXTRA_OPTIONS: {} # optional

      By default, EOX_CORE_SENTRY_INTEGRATION_DSN setting is None, which disables the sentry integration. EOX_CORE_SENTRY_IGNORED_ERRORS is optional. It is a list of the exceptions you want to ignore. For instance, it can be defined as: EOX_CORE_SENTRY_EXTRA_OPTIONS is optional. It is a dictionary with extra options to be passed to the sentry client. For instance, it can be defined as:

             profiles_sample_rate: 0.5
          another_client_parameter: 'value'

Auditing Django views

The majority of views in eox-core use an auditing decorator, defined in our custom library called eox-audit-model, that helps saving relevant information about non-idempotent operations. By default this functionality is turned on. To check your auditing records go to Django sysadmin and find DJANGO EDUNEXT AUDIT MODEL.

For more information, check the eox-audit-model documentation.
