From the Register Provider Domain page, move to the Provider Domain Status section and fill in the relevant fields. 


Provider Domain - While this can be set to any value, we'd recommend to make it easy to identify. 

Provider Domain Status - Set this to Approved

Secondary Hostnames - This field can be left blank


Move to the Default Configuration section. The information you need for this section is set when configuring your integration in Turnitin


Default Configuration - Choose Set globally

Tool Provider Key - This is your Turnitin account ID. You'll find this in your Welcome Email from Turnitin or on the Administrator Homepage within Turnitin.

Tool Provider Secret - This is the Shared Secret you created when you configured the integration within Turnitin. 

Tool Provider Custom Parameters - You can leave this field blank.


From the Institution Policies section, you'll need to change a few options.

Send User Data - This is how your data gets to Turnitin. Choose 'Send user data over any connection'.

Users Fields to Send - Tick all three options. 'Role in Course', 'Name', and 'Email Address'. These options pass the information we need to associate your users with their submissions. 

Allow Membership Service Access - Select the 'Yes' radio button


Checked everything? Use the Submit button to finish.
