    HELP needed: Role of Groupcall Exporter in linking CMIS, Moodle and Active Directory

    We run moodle VLE 4.2 hosted in-house with OvernetData providing CMIS Integration for Moodle.
    We have a problem that user accounts have not been created in moodle as the StudentID field doesn't exist in Active Directory where moodle is expecting it.
    So when the MIS integrator on moodle looks at the data on CMIS it can't match that with any account in Active Directory because the link field in AD is missing.
    The students' set data can't then be brought across from CMIS into Moodle.

    When the accounts were created in Active Directory the studentID was not part of the data used to create those accounts.
    Please note the system has not changed and has worked fine in previous years.

    If seems that the StudentID field just appears in the correct place in Active Directory and no one seems to be able to explain how it gets there???

    Is it the case that the Groupcall exporter running on CMIS writes the data to the field in AD?

    Does any of this make sense to anyone, any ideas?

    Hope I've given enough information....

    Found out today that a network technician had asked the CMIS manager for an export that included StudentID, which he presumably put into Active Directory to make moodle work without telling anyone!
    Apologies for wasting your time to anyone who read this
