Hmm.. not sure if I did the right thing or not really. In the TOC there is a page Authentication common settings so I made that page and then removed from this Authentication intro page those common settings. I am just wondering if they should be together or not? This page here is an intro to all the authentication plugins but it also relates to the Manage authentication screen in admin which is where authentication common settings are - so should all the stuff (updated) be here instead of my new page or not? Also - I copied and pasted some info about "data mapping" which I presume relates to different authentication plugins and would be on their settings pages - should that not actually go onto each settings page instead of here? Again not sure.

How about we treat Authentication in a similar way to Enrolments i.e. have a short intro page listing the different authentication methods plus links to 'Manage authentication' (containing Authentication common settings info and info on multi-authentication) and Authentication FAQ. Re. Profile fields data mapping and locking, I agree it would be best copying and pasting to the authentication plugins for which it applies to. --Helen Foster 03:42, 4 October 2011 (WST)
