On the Account settings page of a person in the administration area, you can perform a number of actions to manage the account.

11.4.2.1. Se connecter comme

As administrator you have the power to log in as any person that you manage and masquerade as them.

Note

Site administrator can log in as anybody while institution administrators can only perform this action for members of their institution(s).

It is a great function for troubleshooting an account because you see everything as the person would without having to know the password.

Avertissement

This function can be misused by administrators because you can make changes to the person’s portfolio and artefacts as well as participate in groups while logged in as them. People should be aware of this function and that an administrator can enter their account.

Sites should have clear policies around the use of this function so that the privacy of people and their portfolios and collaborative work is protected. Therefore, there should also not be many people within an institution who have administrator rights.

username,password,email,firstname,lastname,studentid

For new accounts, this row must include:

  • nom d’utilisateur

  • mot de passe

  • courriel

  • prénom

  • nom

Note

Mahara also accepts CSV files that have a semicolon as separator instead of a comma.

If you want to update existing accounts, you do not need to set a password and can leave that field off entirely.

Note

You can mix new and existing accounts in your CSV file. When you add a new account, the password field must be present. If you do not wish the password to be changed for existing accounts, leave that field empty for these accounts.

If your site or institution has locked fields or fields that are mandatory, then you do not have to include them as fields in your CSV upload.

Add people by CSV file

Add people by CSV file

  1. Institution: Choose the institution and the authentication method for the accounts that you upload and / or change.

  2. Quota d’espace disque : Si vous le désirez, vous pouvez fixer ici un quota différent pour chaque compte dans votre fichier CSV. Les administrateurs d’une institution ne peuvent faire cela que si l’administrateur du site leur en a donné l’autorisation.

  3. Fichier CSV : Vous devez téléverser un fichier au format CSV en cliquant sur le bouton Browse ou Parcourir, puis en sélectionnant le fichier depuis votre ordinateur.

  4. Force password change: If you select this option, people need to change their password before they can log in for the first time.

  5. Email people about their account: Change the switch to “Yes” and people will receive an email with their account information. This is in particular good for internal accounts.

    Note

    For accounts that are managed by an external authentication method such as Moodle or LDAP, do not select this option because the account holders already know their login information.

  6. Update accounts: Change the switch to “Yes” if your CSV file contains changes for existing accounts.

    Note

    When you add a new email address for a person to update the account settings, this new email address becomes the primary email address.

    The previously used email address stays in the account as secondary email address until the account holder deletes it.

  7. General account options: Expand this menu to see default account options that you may choose to change while creating or updating accounts. These are the general account options a person can change on the Settings page.

  8. Click the Add people by CSV button to upload and / or change accounts.

11.4.9. Modifier la méthode d’authentification et le nom d’utilisateur distant de plusieurs utilisateurs

Après que vous ayez invité ou ajoutés de nouveaux membres à votre institution, vous pouvez modifier leur méthode d’authentification. Cela peut se révéler d’autant plus utile si la méthode d’authentification dans cette institution est différente de celle que vos utilisateurs utilisaient dans l’institution précédente; et que vous voulez lier les nouveaux comptes à des comptes distants en utilisant :

  • serveur LDAP

  • un compte Moodle par MNet

  • système SSO (single sign-on) d’un prestataire de service Internet

Note

The change in the authentication method for existing accounts should be done before people try to log in with their new credentials to avoid the creation of a second account for them.

You can change the authentication method for multiple accounts at once to save you time manually updating each account. Changing the authentication method usually also entails changing the remote username (a.k.a. username for external authentication). Therefore, these two are dealt with together to describe the work flow better.

Find accounts in an institution to change their remote username

Find accounts in an institution to change their remote username

  1. Go to Administration menu → People → People search.

  2. Cliquez sur le lien Options avancées pour afficher des options supplémentaires de filtrage.

  3. Filter for accounts by specific characteristics, e.g. if you only wish to display peoples who have not logged in yet.

  4. Rechercher : Entrez le critère de recherche. Le texte en gris par défaut dans la rubrique vous informe dans quelle institution vous allez effectuer la recherche. Entrez le nom, le nom d’affichage, le nom d’utilisateur, ou l’adresse de courriel, entièrement ou de manière partielle, pour effectuer la recherche. Si vous avez activé l’option de recherche exacte, vous devez entrer ou l’adresse ou le nom exact de la personne que vous recherchez, car la recherche partielle n’est alors plus possible.

  5. Use the drop-down arrow to choose a single institution in which to search for your person.

  6. Cliquez sur le bouton Rechercher pour lancer la rechercher.

  7. Change the Results per page if you wish to see more than 10 results per page.

Update accounts in bulk

  1. Click the Download button so that you get a CSV file which contains all necessary information for you to change the remote username in bulk. This is necessary if their internal Mahara username is not the same as the one they use to authenticate on your system that is linked to Mahara or if they already have a remote username that would be incorrect for your institution.

    Note

    You do not need to see the column “Remote username” for the data to be in the CSV download. If you wish to see it on screen, click the Configure report button and select the “Remote username” column.

  2. Open the CSV file in your preferred spreadsheet software. In the column remoteuser, add or change the username that your account holders have when authenticating in your regular system that you have connected to Mahara. You may also change other fields, e.g. their name, email address etc. If you want to add a new person directly in this CSV file, you can do so as well.

    Note

    You must provide a password for a new account. All others do not need to have a value in the password field. If you only want to update existing accounts, you can leave the password field entirely off.

    You must remove the column “lastlogin”. Mahara will produce an error if you leave it in the file.

  3. Go to Administration menu → People → Add people by CSV.

  4. Institution: Choose the correct institution and authentication method for which you want to update accounts. This allows you to switch all accounts in the CSV file from one authentication method to another.

  5. File quota: Choose a different file quota here if you want to update it for accounts you upload.

  6. Fichier CSV : Sélectionnez le fichier CSV que vous avez modifié sur votre ordinateur.

  7. Update accounts: Switch this option to “Yes” because you want to update existing accounts.

    Note

    Switch the options Force password change and Email people about their account to “No”. When you add a remote username, your account holders do not need to know their internal Mahara password as they cannot use it anyway.

  8. General account options: You can make changes to the default account options for everyone, e.g. give them multiple journals by default, change their interface language etc.

  9. Click the Add people by CSV button to start the update. This process may take a little while depending on how many accounts you are changing.

  10. You receive a report on the page upon the successful completion of the upgrade. If the upgrade fails, error messages help you to resolve the problem. No accounts are updated until all errors are resolved.

Note

If you intend to update more than 100 accounts at the same time, you may run into problems, and the server may reject your CSV file as the update process is a very memory intense one. If that is the case, you would have to split your CSV file into smaller ones with fewer accounts in them.
