Issuing

Issuing is the process of awarding a badge to a specific earner. In BadgeKit API, issuing a badge means creating a badge instance. Note that when a review is submitted in which an earner application for a badge is approved, this does not mean that the badge is automatically issued. Issuer sites must use the below API endpoints to issue badges, marking any relevant applications as processed when this occurs. These endpoints also apply to badges issued without the assessment process, for example badges issued directly to earner email addresses or using claim codes.

Badge Instances

NAME VALUE
slug string
email email address - earner email
expires timestamp - optional expiry date
issuedOn timestamp - API will generate
claimCode claim code - if badge is issued using claim code
assertionUrl url - location of issued badge assertion, generated by API
badge badge - API endpoints return badge issued along with instances

Create a Badge Instance

To actually issue (or "award") a badge to an earner in BadgeKit API, you create a badge instance. A badge instance is an awarded badge, issued to a specific earner.

Expected request

POST /systems/:slug/badges/:slug/instances
POST /systems/:slug/issuers/:slug/badges/:slug/instances
POST /systems/:slug/issuers/:slug/programs/:slug/badges/:slug/instances

Requests can be sent as application/json, application/x-www-form-urlencoded or multipart/form-data.

Parameters Required Description
email required The email address for the earner the badge is being issued to.
claimCode optional A claim code for the badge.
slug optional Instance slug. (API will generate if not provided.)
issuedOn optional Timestamp representing date issued. (API will generate if not provided.)
expires optional Timestamp representing date instance expires.

Expected response

HTTP/1.1 201 Created
Content-Type: application/json
{
  "status": "created",
  "instance": {
      "slug": "abcdefghi123456789abcdefghi123456789",
      "email": "earner@somedomain.com",
      "expires": null,
      "issuedOn": "2014-05-29T10:16:01.654Z",
      "claimCode": "abcde12345",
      "assertionUrl": "http://issuersite.com/public/assertions/abcdefghi123456789abcdefghi123456789",
      "badge": null
  }
}

The assertion URL represents the location of the badge assertion. A badge assertion contains the details of an issued badge. See the latest assertion specification for more information. Claim code is only returned if the badge instance was created using a claim code.
