Chapter 4 & 5: Configuring Moodle 2.0 with Active Directory and LDAP Attributes

Standard

Configuring Moodle with Active Directory can be very simple but it is important that it is also done to best practice with tight security.  During chapter 4 we discuss how to connect Moodle to Active Directory with a dedicated user that you have created and given delegated rights to.  This user only has permission to what it requires instead of giving them administrator access to the whole domain.

In chapter 5 it looks at the different settings required to link Moodle profile settings to Active Directory user attributes.  This chapter is in 3 sections, the first in about the different attributes in Moodle and Active Directory and how they can be linked.  The second part of the chapter looks at configuring Moodle and Active Directory to link the different attributes while the final section looks at how you can to write back user changes in their Moodle profile back to Active Directory
