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.

    Hello, Nicolas.

    I installed the plugin and made the necessary changes. My scenario is that students must view the course based on a custom user field that I created. I don't see the course when I log in, but I do if I click the force enrolment now button in the plugin settings. Is there anything else I'm overlooking?

    Hello Sree Vishnu,

    In the main plugin settings in the Moodle administration, you can check the "Enrol users immediately at login" checkbox; this will process the rule immediately upon each login. In all other cases, the rules are processes periodically as specified in the scheduled task's schedule under Administration > Server > Scheduled tasks > "Process all rules and enrolments for Enrol by user profile fields".

    Hello Koen,

    it should be either in the mdl_config or mdl_config_plugins table.

    Hi Nicolas,

    I have found the data table with the enrol attributes.

    What I'm actually looking for is where the data / profile fields are stored that may be used for the enrollment on the course page.

    When I have created a profile field and placed it manually in the db config_plugins, this profile field is not yet visible at Enrol by user profile fields in the course.

    Hopefully you can provide me with an answer.

    Is it stored in de cache or a other db table?

    So how do you use this plugin? I have it installed and activated in available course enrollment plugins but when I go to set it on a course it is not in the available list. I'm using a fresh install of Moodle 3.11.

    Have set enrolment methods to following:
    Manual Enrolments
    Self enrolment
    NurseEnrol (Enrol by user profile field)

    Seems plugin is not working as have set NurseEnrol to a specific user field which is the Grade. This grade is Nurse
    If a grade is a doctor he still is able to register into course. What am I doing wrong?

    Hello, congratulations for this plugin. It's really helpful.
    Question: Is it possible to filter suspended users with the enrol by user profile fields plugin so that they are not enrolled in a course?

    Hi Nicolas,
    Just wanted to see if there would be any future updates where the conditions rules include options other than equality? Such as greater than or equal to?

    I´ve installed and activated the plugin on Moodle 4.0. I can see main plugin settings in site administration but I can´t see where to configure the conditions for enrolment. Our theme is Adaptable but I´ve tried changing to Classic and it hasn´t made any difference. Where should these conditions appear? Thanks.

    Eu quero colocar uma condição para as matrículas dos meus alunos. Quero deixar um curso específico condicionado a quem está em determinado setor, indicado nos campos de perfil de usuário.
