Maintained by This is a picture of meDonald Barrett, Picture of Learning WorksLearning Works
A local plugin with webservice functions for managing cohort enrolments.
21 sites
Current versions available: 1

The webservice functions for cohort enrolment provides the ability to manage cohort enrolment instances using Moodle webservices. This plugin was developed for Te Wānanga O Aotearoa to streamline the enrolment of Tauira (student, learner) into courses.

The following webservice functions are available.

  • add_instance - Add a cohort enrolment instance to a course
  • update_instance - Update an existing cohort enrolment instance
  • delete_instance - Delete an existing cohort enrolment instance
  • get_instances - Gets the cohort enrolment instances for all courses or a single course

The webservice documentation for the above functions can be found at

When the plugin is installed all of the cohort enrolment webservice functions are added to the Built-in services.

An example call to the webservice function for adding a cohort enrolment instance to course would look like this:[courseid]=2&instance[cohortid]=4&instance[roleid]=1

This plugin can be installed by following the official Moodle documentation - Installing plugins.
This plugin can be used in accordance with the official Moodle documentation - Using web services.

    Hi Donald,
    Thanks for this plugin! It should be core Moodle if you wish to setup a big installation. Will this be working on future Moodle versions? It now only says Moodle 3.3. We seriously need this, but what we don't need is that this will stop working if we upgrade Moodle to f.e. 3.6

    Hello Richard,

    Sorry for not responding earlier. This has been tested in 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6. I have just added v3.3.3 that addresses an issue where sites with a large number of cohorts were unable to add cohort enrolment instances to their courses. Thanks again Thomas (thoschi) for the fix.
