I'm running 2.2.1
I'm trying to set up a user level repository. I am a teacher running my own installation. I have two accounts set up, my teacher account and my manager account. I don't use my manager account on a regular basis since it makes things much cleaner. I'd like to try to set up a user level file system repository for the teacher account. I've tried to add a user level repository for the teacher account from my manager account and get an error message that this not allowed.
"You can not view/edit repository instances of another user" and get a link to http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/error/repository/notyourinstances.
So my first question is why can't a manager add a repository for another user? Isn't this the point of the manager?
Next, based on http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-28656 I gave my teacher account the moodle/site:config to try to allow it to add a private instance but I still get a message saying that I don't have permission to do that.. I added my teacher account to the manager role temporarily and that got me the same error message. I can do it if I make my teacher account a full site administrator. That seems like a really poor choice in a large site. Its fine for me but it would be horrible idea for most people.
What am I doing wrong?
