Externally hosted Storyline course content won't bookmark or signal completion (AICC)

Apr 27, 2015

I have a course that has the content externally hosted in a different domain. The LMS is SumTotal 7.1

I have followed the instructions for using a relay file (php version) as written here:


...and yet the LMS receives no completion message (always "in progress") and the user must always start from the beginning (no bookmarking.)

Any help would be appreciated

Hi Randall,

So after answering the prompt for a yes, you're brought back to the start of the course? The LMS may have it's own resume behavior set up - but you'd need to check that with them. If you'd like to take a look at the data being sent back and forth you could enable LMS debug mode as described here.

actually I got the debug mode to work (caching error prevented it loading)

I noticed a couple of things:

I get this message when exiting the course: Cannot make calls to the LMS before calling Start

I see this a couple of times: AICCComm - Checking for presense of 'http://'

However my course and LMS (SCORM cloud) are both on https:// protocol. Would that cause teh issue?
