I want to allow some users the permission to see/access all courses (manager role). I went to Site administration => Users => Permissions => Assign system roles, then I selected Manager to assign an user the manager role.
The manager role has been assigned to the user successfully. I can see the user in the list of managers.
Next I went to Site administration => Users => Permissions => Define roles to verify the manager permissions. It has the "View courses without participation" allow.
Then I went to Site administration => Users => Permissions => Check users permissions to see all permissions of this user. The "view courses without participation" is not allowed. Why?
I tried to assign to this user the manager role in the courses category, and in the frontpage, but same results (the user can not enter to courses, you can not enroll yourself in this course message).
What I am doing wrong? It is a bug of this Moodle version?
I am running Moodle 2.8.3+.
