Hi, our enablement organization is rolling out Credly digital badging for our certifications.  

Is there any way to post a badge with metadata included (hyperlink back to a Credly profile) or just the static visual?

Has anyone else done anything with open badging standards?

I can provide more details if that would help. Our certification events aren’t super-dynamic so we aren’t looking for a full integration at this stage.  Thanks!

You should be able to integrate the two via APIs on both sides. In inSided you can aware a badge using the API https://api2-eu-west-1.insided.com/docs/user/#operation/awardBadge or revoke a badge as well. Whatever the certification trigger is on the Credly side is should be able to trigger an action on the inSided side. I don’t think, based on the API that you’d be able to include a link back to a Credly profile. My guess is that you’d have to have the same badges setup on both systems. Would chat with someone on your engineering side to explore.
