Your Moodle version

Enrolment: Enrol by user profile fields

Maintained by Picture of Nicolas Dunand Nicolas Dunand
This plugin allows users to be enrolled according to any value stored in their user profile.

This plugin allows users to be enrolled according to any value stored in their user profile. If you use an external authentication scheme (LDAP, Shibboleth), you can store values in hidden user fields of the users' Moodle profile, and then use these values to automatically enrol users if some courses.

    I am trying out this module on a test site and am having problems for the profile fields. Where are the custom profile fields pulled from. I see the sample profile fields from your screenshot in my dropdown list, but these are not defined user profile fields on my test system. I have also created 2 custom profile fields, but they do not show up in the drop down.

    At what point does this plugin do the enrolment? Signup/login/course access?

    What happens if an employee gets a raise and has to take a manger position course but he was enrolled to the employee position course. Will the plugin notice the profile_field_position change and enrol to the courses that are required of the new position

    ok - looks like the options for the enrolment fields need to be hardcoded into: jquery.booleanEditor.js lines 14 -19 or so, delete as needed. Haven't got it working yet - but that seems to be the first step.

    afaik this *should* work on Moodle 2.6 but I haven't checked it yet – I'll make sure it works for Moodle 2.7 this summer as we'll upgrade our platform

    We just upgraded our DB to mysql5.6 and are now getting this error:

    Any idea what might be causing it?
    I also changed around the user profile fields at the same time to fix a syncing issue, so it may not just be the upgrade.

    I am tryin got restrict users by email addresses.
    First we have a different url for student emails
    and each username is specific in someway to the department or year within the department.
    I am not sure how to achieve that or even if that is possible.

    I just upgraded to moodle 2.7. The screen-shot you posted makes your plugin look pretty straight forward but the version that is released for moodle 2.7 looks nothing like the screen shot. In fact, it only has one field to input data into. Can you give an example of how to use this one? Thanks

    Hi, I'm trying to get this work with Moodle 2.8 but I cannot see where to change the list of profile fields that are allowed. Where do you set the list of profile fields that can be used in the rules?

    I am not sure exactly how this works and how you can customise it to use our own Customised profile fields.
    Any pointers would be great.

    Hi and thanks for the plugin, Could I use this to force learners to complete a empty profile field? So my emrollment method would be if field_company != "" then they could be enrolled? So long as it's not empty?
