Step 1

Enable the Integration

From the menu Advanced Configuration > Third-Party Integrations, you will find the Turnitin settings. (Figure 1&2)

In the Turnitin Settings, you must switch ON the “Enable” radio button. In the Domain field, the URL should be added. You can get that from the browser where you are logged in to your administrator account. In the Turnitin Administration portal, go to integrations and generate an API Scope.

The API key that is created when generating the API scope should be copied and filled in the API Key field. (Figure 3)
