Moodle Mobile - AD integration and SSO?
 

Hi everyone

I have a query that I've struggled to have answered, so wondered if you could help?

Is it possible to use Moodle Mobile if users have been integrated via AD? 

And, if a user has a mobile device utilising an SSO account, will it automatically log them in?

Thanks

Eddie

Hi Ted,

if your site is using a SSO system you can still use the Moodle Mobile app, but the authentication will be done in the browser or in a popover window:

https://docs.moodle.org/35/en/Moodle_Mobile_guide_for_admins#Mobile_authentication

Once the user is authenticated in the browser or popover window, the app will be resumed and the user will be authenticated.

Regarding the second question, do you mean that you want to launch the app and authenticate automatically from another app/browser? In that case, the answer is no. The only way to authenticate users in the app is to launch Moodle Mobile first, then let it open the browser/popover and perform the authentication in there. If the user is already authenticated in the browser then he won't need to do anything, the browser will be closed automatically and he'll be authenticated in the app.

Kind regards,

Dani
