Hi, I'm looking for some guidance regarding a change to Moodle that my organization requires.
We have several live Moodle instalations and we want to ensure that the course short name is consistent with the platform it's currently on, as such we were hoping to simply enforce a unique prefix in every install, thus avoiding mixups with similar courses.
While researching how to do this, it seems that customsscripts and plugins are the best to do this and ensure future compatibility with any updates. I'm not aware of any option in Moodle or any plugin that might offer this functionality, as such I started reading all I can about the subject in order to implement this, but Moodle is a "beast" and I fear it will take quite some time until I find what I need, so.... could someone with a bit more experience point me in the right direction?
Customscript? Or plugin? Relevant API? Workflow of how this could be implemented?
