Public Method Author API


Sets the Items to be used in the Activity being edited. This overwrites the current Items in the Activity.

You would want to use this method so that you can programmatically add default Items when a new Activity is created, for example.

If using Items from multiple Item banks for an Activity, you can set up an array of ItemBankDefinition as an entry in Activity edit's item_banks.


var hasSetActivityItems = authorApp.setActivityItems(
            reference: "test1",
            organisation_id: 1
            reference: "test3",
            organisation_id: 1,
            item_pool_id: "pool_1"


  • items array[ItemObject]

    An array of Item references.

Return value


Returns true if successful.

Returns false if unable to to set the Activity Items, for example, when not in the Activity editor view.
