Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.5. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Capabilities/moodle/role:assign.

  • This allows a user to assign roles in a given context (system, front page, course category or course).
  • Note that to assign a role A to another user, the user doing the assignment has to hold a role B so that role B is permitted to assign role A. This is controlled in Allow role assignments. This is logical because even though a teacher might have moodle/role:assign, in most situations we only want them to be able to assign users the student role, and not the admin role in their course.
  • The default teacher role has this capability set to allow. It is not set for the default non-editing teacher role.
