    Moodle Assigning System Roles From Actve Directory

    Does anybody know a way to do this?

    I.e Add a user to active Directory Group Moodle Administrators And they automatically become moodle administrators?


    I have moodle and Ldap sorted - just wondering about this?

    You can setup Moodle to use the AD Groups to auto assign some roles, i.e STAFF to Non-Editing Teacher or something.

    I had it setup at one point but we removed it as there is only actually a need to assign permissions once (we found) and by the time I had it working correctly everyone was enrolled and in the correct groups except my test accounts.


    As I've just wrote that I've just checked and everything has changed in Moodle 2.0 now apparently, maybe it something that you should avoid setting up if you plan to upgrade soon.

    I'm still running moodle 1.9.7 - Havn't quite got round to upgrading yet.

    I'm currently testing the possibilities of bring moodle in house. The reason i looked at something like this was because you can't assign staff to roles until they have logged into moodle as they are reading the data from Sims.
