Assessment certificates are a great way to recognize and reward the effort that goes into upskilling and building your secure coding culture.
NOTE: Only Company Administrators can manage Assessment Certificates
When creating a certificate that will automatically be generated and emailed to your team, you can use the default pre-installed certificate, customize it or make a new one.
If you need to create an assessment still, head over to this article for some help.
If you’ve already created an assessment, keep reading.
Open Guided Learning from the top navigation menu then Click Assessments. Click the Manage Certificates button
The Certificate Templates dialogue will list all the available templates, including the prebuilt Secure Code Warrior® themed one.
Create/Modify an Assessment Certificate
From the Certificate Templates window, select the base template to be modified and click Template to download the HTML file.
Open the HTML template in your favorite editor and update it as required.
For example, to change the logo, simply replace the line shown below with the full public URL to your logo.
<img src="http://assessment-templates.s3-website-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/assessment-certificate-template-logo.png" width="250px" alt="">
To change the background image, replace the following code with the full public URL to the desired background image
background-image: url('http://assessment-templates.s3-website-us-west 2.amazonaws.com/assessment-certificate-template-background-1.jpg')"
The Secure Code Warrior Certificate Generator uses a set of variables containing relevant information about the assessment itself, the user and the organization;
- displayName: contains the display name of the developer that completed the assessment.
- validationCode: randomly generated hash to identify the passed assessment instance
- assessmentName: name of the assessment
- passingGrade: % of accuracy/correct answers
- companyName: name of the company emitting the certificate (your company)
- finishDate: date of completion in "Month Nth YYYY" format
This template is meant to use as a base to build your own assessment certificates. It needs to follow the same rules as if it were an email template:
- No remote CSS files can be imported (CSS needs to be inline)
- Images will be fetched from the requested source
- Inline images are not supported
TIP: Image hosting - images must be hosted on a publicly accessible server. If you don't have a public server available or don't want to make the images public, please contact our support team for hosting images on our secure private server.
Once your new Assessment Certificate HTML template is ready, click Create Template. Give the Certificate a name, description and set the orientation then click Upload
