Password expiration doesn't disable login
 

Greetings,

im quite "shocked" to realize that one can still login and view courses even if the password has been detected as expired. I successfully configured my ldap server and moodle settings to detect that a password is indeed expired, but, after the warning message, when given the chance to update it, i simply go back to the main page and im still logged in.

Is there something im missing or this is really the way its suposed to work? I figured it would prevent me from staying logged.

 

Thanks in advance

You are not missing anything, and it's been working like that for years and years (so I guess the answer to your second question is more or less a 'yes').

There has been some talk about changing this behaviour, but there's no consensus on how to do it so far.

Saludos. Iñaki.

I ended up forcing the logout between realizing the password was expired and printing the change password message. Now i know this had to be done.

Thanks for the reply.
