We are a new Moodle school so please forgive any naivity!
We have Moodle talking nicely to our Active Directory using LDAP and it mostly works. However our AD does not have email addresses populated and for long and boring technical reasons cannot update the 2000 odd users in AD.
Therefore we performed Upload Users and populated the email addresses in Moodle. So far so good.
Although we have Update External set correctly (and this works when we do a manual change to the email address field (assuming the field is unlocked)) the Active Directory is not updated with this new information.
Is this a bug, or known functionality? Regardless, is there a work around (perhaps a PHP script to force a LDAP update).
This would be a one-off solution as all new users from now on would be entered correctly in the AD.
I would be very grateful for assistance!
