Read on for Moodle Workplace 3.10 highlights. Full details of the release with technical information can be found in the Moodle Workplace 3.10 release notes.


Multi-tenant authentication

The main feature of this release is the introduction of multi-tenant authentication plugins. We’ve put in place all the tools needed to make authentication plugins tenant aware, and made multi-tenant the two most used core plugins: Email-based self-registration and OAuth2.

Now it’s possible to set different authentication configurations for each tenant in a Workplace site, including the availability of plugins or changing the settings for the same plugin in different tenants.

Per-tenant authentication plugins

Selected authentication settings such as authentication instructions and allowed domains can be overridden for individual tenants. Site administrators are also able to force some settings for all tenants. Tenant admin can override common settings or settings for multi-tenant auth plugins in their tenant using the new Authentication tab in the Users page.

Multi-tenant auth plugins

Email-based self-registration and OAuth2 are now multi-tenant. Global administrator or tenant administrator can enable/disable these plugins on a tenant level and override their settings. When a new user signs up from a tenant-specific login page their account is automatically registered inside this tenant.

Shared space

Shared reports - 01.png

Shared reports

Reports are available now in the Shared Space and can be shared with all tenants or be only accessible to users with access to the shared space. This feature enables users to use the same report definition site-wide without duplicating the same reports in all tenants. It also allows creating cross-tenant reports. When a shared report is viewed from inside the tenant it only displays the users and entities from this tenant. When a shared report is viewed from Shared space it shows information from all tenants.

Migration
