Description

If direct subscribe is set to nobody in a course, you as the the course admin cannot even subscribe someone? This is ridiculous, because as the course admin you can change the setting "direct subscribe", but you cannot subscribe someone if you deactivate it... If you want to subscribe users, it says "SubscribeNA" (also translation missing)

  • Status changed from New to Needs more info

There are two rights defined:

  • Direct subscribe available (for people to subscribe to the course when they are not in it)
  • Teacher subscribe available (A course type right only - Defines that a course admin can subscribe the selected users / groups)

As an platform administrator you always have every right available and can subscribe anyone you want to a course. A platform administrator can also be subscribed / unsubscribed to a course. (limitation of the current rights system that a platform administrator has every right available).

This has been thoroughly tested and is working on various production servers.

Please check if the teacher subscribe available right is set to everyone.
