We have connected Moodle and Mahara, but when a user from Moodle goes to Mahara, it creates a new user for him each time that opens a session...

We have Moodle v. 3.3.2 and Mahara v. 17.04.2

Can someone help me?

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Hi Margari,

Which type of Authentication on the Mahara end are you using to SSO from Moodle to Mahara? is it MNet (XML-RPC)?

If so what settings do you have for that authentication plugin?

When new users are created each time what are the 'username' value for the new users? This value should be passed in from Moodle - is it a constant value?

If you can provide more information I'll try and work out what the problem could be
