User aliases using auth_remote_user table
11 June 2009, 10:40
I have Mahara installation connected via MNet with two remote Moodle servers. Moodle users are allowed to SSO into Mahara. For each of Moodle sites a separate institution is created. I have an account at both Moodle servers. I want to set it up so if I SSO into Mahara from whatever Moodle, I end up with the single Mahara account.
I have hacked auth_remote_user table so both remote accounts are mapped to the one local account and SSO works great. However I have a problem with intitutions membership.
Local user must be member of a one institution at a time. If I add my local user account into the second Moodle institution,it is silently removed from the first one and vice versa. Is the a feature? How can I make my Mahara user to be member of both institutions?
Thanks in advance for your help
