Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.2. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Server files repository.

The server repository allows users with the correct permissions to see files on the server. This might mean only files and folders in the context of the current course, or access to a file system that will allow them to use other courses files.

To access any repository, click on it.

Repository capabilities

The capability View server repository, which is allowed for the default roles of manager, course creator, teacher and non-editing teacher, ensures that the server files repository is listed in the file picker. This capability should be allowed together with the manage files capability to enable users to access files used within a course.
