Rocket.Chat activity for Moodle

This plugin allows teachers to keep synchronized users enrolled in a Moodle course into a dedicated Rocket.Chat private channel.

Main feature

Adding this activity to a Moodle course will create a private channel in Rocket.Chat and push Moodle users associated to this activity as members of this newly created channel. The list of members will then be kept up to date.

It will be possible to access to this Rocket.Chat channel directly from Moodle or through any autonomous Rocket.Chat client.

We strongly advice you  the have same Moodle user logins and user logins(CAS, LDAP, etc.).

If they're different, you'll have to implement a hook in the plugin to add your own translation rule (see bellow).

    > Does the user have to login each time in Rocket.Chat when redirecting him from moodle?

    Not if you use Single SIgn On authentication in Moodle and Rocket.Chat. At this time CAS SSO is supported. To use SAML SSO you must garantee that Moodle username and Rocket.Chat username are strictly the same.

    Hello, this plugin works with every versions of rocketchat.
    Be careful, you need to create a token for this usage (this is detailed in the readme file on github).
    If you still have trouble, post an issue on github, there will be more people able to help you there.

    I am an admin on Moodle, but I can't add myself in a private channel of a Moodle's class even when I add myself as a manager in a Moodle class. Why this is happening?
  • Mon, Aug 22, 2022, 4:27 PM
    Hi! In the global parameters of the plugin (defaultmoderatorroles), did you define manager role as a moderator in RC ? You may have only define teacher and editingteacher roles as moderator in RC which would explain your problem.

    Hello, thanks for your plugin, is it possible to integrate german umlaute ü, ö and ä? right now these special characters are replaced by underscores. Thanks alot

    Hello, can you be a little more specific on where do you encountered such a trouble. Can you describe it on the project github as an issue please?
  • Mon, Oct 17, 2022, 8:13 PM
    Thanks for your fast reply, yes of course. When I use the rocketchat plugin in a course it also creates the course channel in rocket chat, so far so good. The problem then is that for example the course name is "Einführung Prüfungssoftware" the channel name would be "Einf__hrung_Pr__fungssoftware". And it would be great if it would be Einführung Prüfungssoftware" without any underscores.

    you must change the module Rocket.Chat setting validationgroupnameregex to add the german characters to the accepted characters.
    this is the exact negation of the one filled in Rocket.Chat server groupe name validation name
