Introduction

This document is about functional specification for Repository Administration
Note: parts of this document about "settings a repository" (UC001-3) are generic to all plugins. Please see the Repository Plugins wiki page for specific plugin specification.

Requirements

  • be able to enable/disable a repository
  • be able to order a repository (it will change the way repositories are displayed in the file picker)
  • be able to setup a repository

User Interface

We want something similar to Admin > Modules > Filters > Manage Filters (Admin > Modules > Repositories > Manage Repositories). Below an example:

Admin repository.jpg

  • The list is automatically generated. The list displays all repository plugin located in the moodle/repository/plugins folder
  • Enable/Disable operation is available for all plugin
  • Order operation is available for all plugin
  • Settings operation is not mandatory. This operation is available when the plugin package come with a settings.php file. All these plugin settings page should also be available from some Administration menu entries: Admin > Modules > Repositories > "Repository Name"

Settings operation

When user selects Settings operation for a repository, the system display a new page with a new form.
Settings options can be different for each module:

  • allow the user to "Remember password"
  • URL to the repository
  • Rename the repository (affect only the name displayed in Moodle)
