I have noticed that if I create an LDAP account and then log into Moodle with that account I can log in but all I get is a page that states "Sorry, you cannot edit own profile". It has a continue button but clicking it only reloads the page stating that you can't edit the profile.
If I then log in as an admin, it has a blank line in the users list, If I click the settings on that it shows me the LDAP account that tried to log in and I can add First name, Last name and email address. Then if I log in as the regular LDAP account I can see a regular student account and take courses and such.
What would I need to do to get Moodle to populate those values from LDAP so that all we have to do is create the LDAP account and the person could login and take courses?
Also, can I remove email address as a required field?
