Can anyone help me out. I setup a user with the Manager role and he cannot see the 'Browse List of Users' option. Is there a specific permission that needs to be overridden?
in which context did you assign the manager role to the user ? Is the manager role you assigned the default one or a custom one ? You may want to check if you assigned the default manager role at system context level: "Site administration > Users > Permissions > Assign system roles".
Andrea, thank you for responding to me. Yes, I assigned the default manager role to the user using the method you described. The default manager role is the only role the user has. He cannot see the 'Browse List of Users' link though, only 'Cohorts, Upload Users, Upload Users Pictures.' Any ideas? Also, is there a specific permission that allows 'Browse List of Users' to show up?
a default manager role should be able to access "Browse list of users" link from "Site administration > Users > Accounts > Browse list of users", probably your role is not a default role. A possibility could be resetting the role to its default. To do this, go in " Site administration > Users > Permissions > Define roles" and click on "Manager" role, the click on "Reset" button. Make sure the drop down "Use role archetype" is set to Manager, then scroll down the page and click on "Continue" button. On the last page, click on "Save changes".
Resetting the Manager role did not fix the issue. Users in the manager role are unable to 'Browse List of Users.'
This is a test instance of Moodle from an upgrade from 1.9.5. I wonder if there are any left over permission issues that I should look into...
Perhaps you can still help me. After resetting the manager role I made sure all 6 contexts were checked and set every single permission to allow. Yet, none of the users in the Manager role can see Browse List of Users. Could another role be blocking the ability to Browse List of Users?
If you go to the Moodle sandbox http://demo.moodle.net/ you can see how a manager assigned as system role can browse the list of users. The sandbox has everything as default. Try making a new account and giving it just that role of manager and see if that works. I would reset the manager role to default but not change anything else afterwards.
I had to reset all of the defined roles in order for the Manager role to be able to Browse List of Users. There must have been a holdover from the upgrade that was blocking that capability.
I'm trying to find this answer to this exact. In my situation, the Managers roles can correctly view the Browse List of Users options.
What I need is for my TEACHERS to be able tosee the Browse List of Users option for many reasons. I DONT want to have to resort to giving teachers the Manager role as there are too many other privileges available in the Manager role.
So I will re-ask Seth's original question in case anyone happens to know this answer: Which specific role permission allows users to see the Browse List of Users? I want to enable this specific permission for my Teachers role.
An Update to my post above:
I've tested different Role permissions by turning them off/on and seeing what gets effected. I've determined that if a Role does NOT have the Delete Users permission enabled (moodle/user:delete), then the Browse List of Users will NOT appear under site admin.
Again, I'm trying to figure out a way to enables teachers to Browse List of Users but at the same time, NOT have the ability to delete user accounts. These 2 seemed to be linked in the Role permissions.
Anyone have a suggestion on how to enable teachers to see the Browse List of Users without having the ability to delete users?
Thank you for the information. At this point I will need to grant delete access my non-editing teachers. I don't like it but it seems like this is the only option right now. Thanks for sharing the details, I just realized the role tweaking I did removed the 'Browse a list of users' capability that my non-editing teachers need to have.
A work around:
I created a course called Teacher's Lounge.
I created a cohort and enrolled all student in this course (it is hidden so they cannot see it).
I enrolled all teachers in this course.
Now the teachers can "Browse All Users" by clicking on the "Enrolled users" in this course.
I would like to add for those struggling like I was that you must also have moodle/user:update removed in order for the browse list of users to be hidden. So you should NOT have moodle/user:delete and moodle/user:update.
To clarify, as long as you have moodle/user:editprofile enabled, the role's users will be able to edit a user's profile. They will just have to have an alternative method to get to the users (I use the Mentee/Parent block to give them specific access to only their groups' users).
