Publishflow Block : Requirements
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.0. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Publishflow Block : Requirements.
XMLRPC Handling by blocks
The Publishflow block makes an important use of MNET RPC calls at block level.
Running the Publishflow architecture needs to add an identified patch called : extending RPC handling to blocks in Moodle 1.9. This handling is implemented in Moodle 2.0.
Tracker reference is : http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-23194
User Mnet Hosts block
In its actual version, the publish flow uses the blocks/user_mnet_hosts (non standard) block as basic policy to allow or not allow course deployment.
(That is, a user need tohave a granted access to a MNET remote host to be able to deploy or publish).
This was used in some projects.
We should provide a further version that avoids this cross dependancy.
