LDAP syncing scripts

Build Status

This plugin synchronizes Moodle cohorts against an LDAP directory using either group memberships or attribute values. This is a continuation of Patrick Pollet's local_ldap plugin, which in turn was inspired by MDL-25011 and MDL-25054.

Requirements

  • Moodle 3.3.1 (build 2017051501 or later)
  • OpenLDAP or Active Directory

Installation

Copy the ldap folder into your /local directory and visit your Admin Notification page to complete the installation. You must have either the CAS or LDAP authentication method enabled.

Configuration

Depending on your environment the plugin may work with default options. Configuration settings include the group class (groupOfNames by default) and whether to automatically import all found LDAP groups as cohorts. By default this setting is disabled.

Usage

Previous versions of this plugin used a CLI script. This is deprecated in favor of two scheduled tasks, one for syncing by group and another for syncing by attribute. Both are configured to run hourly and are disabled by default.
