I'm still new here (and new to interacting with databases), and trying to get external database authentication and enrollment is kicking my butt.
I did manage to get moodle to somewhat connected to the database I'm trying to pull from, and I got rid of an initial error I had on the authentication side (although I'm not 100% convinced it was the correct fix), but that's not working yet. https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=259291
On the enroll side, I have moodle connecting to the external db and the correct table, only I'm getting an "External course table not specified." error.
In the attached screen grab, beneath the error message saying I'm not connected to a table, you can see a list of the column names in the table.
I'm trying to connect the courseid number to the 'parent_post_id' column. I did go into the course settings and set the Course ID of the course to match the post id number in question.
Is the External Database Enrolment plugin dependent on the External Database Authentication plugin being successfully set up? i.e. if a user isn't added to moodle, will the external database test not work?
