This document is about functional specification for Moodle Repository Plugin. The Moodle Repository plugin allows a user to browse a foreign Moodle site in the File Picker. The user sees all the raw files he has access to there.


  • Moodle administrator set which Moodle peer will be available into the file picker (one Moodle repository instance = one peer)
  • A peer can be linked to only one Moodle repository instance
  • A teacher cannot set a Moodle repository at the course level
  • Moodle user cannot set a Moodle repository at personal level
  • Only people with roles that have "Roam to a remote Moodle moodle/site:mnetlogintoremote" will be allowed to roam [1]
  • Remote repository display content as the Local repository plugin does. No auto enrolment.

User Interface

The administrator can add/delete the Remote Moodle Repository plugin. No settings are needed to the plugin level.

A Moodle administrator can add/delete/edit instances. For an instance he can set:
