This guide will give you the data model and the custom objects reference in NetExam - integration

1. Will the email be sent every time I press the Send Contact to NetExam button?

No. This will work only for new user registration. 

2. How can Admin see if the email went out? Is there any log to check?

The Communication Report located under the Communications tab in the NetExam Admin site will show you a log of the email that went out to users. This report can be filtered according to specific dates and the relevant email templates.

One of our goals is to make using NetExam easier. Using SFDC OAuth login settings, Learners can have a single sign on with their SFDC credentials! Learners who have an SFDC login can choose the “Login from SFDC” option.

To enable SSO OAuth login, you will have to provide us with your OAuth consumer key and consumer secret code. (We are working on adding a UI for this function.) To acquire your credentials you will need to configure a “connected app” in your Salesforce account.

Follow these steps to add the connected app in Salesforce:

  1. Go to Setup: Create: App: Connected App: New
  2. Connected App Name : Netexam_OAuth
  3. API Name :NE_OAuth 
  4. Contact Email : a valid email
  5. Enable OAuth Settings : check
  6. Callback URL :
  7. Selected OAuth Scopes : Full Access (Full)

Once you save NetExam as your connected app, you will get a consumer key and consumer secret under the API (Enable OAuth Settings) section. Submit a Support Ticket for our support team to implement the login.

Question: Can NetExam sync the user who self registered with SFDC? 

Answer: No. The user will not register automatically in SFDC when using Self Registration. If you need the user account to sync with SFDC, first you need to create the profile in SFDC, then update the SFDC ID in the user’s NetExam Account ID.
