What is an authentication?

Authentication is the process of allowing a user to login to a Moodle site based on their username and password.

Authentication Plugins

Moodle provides a number of ways of managing authentication, called authentication plugins.

  • Manual accounts - accounts created manually by an administrator
  • No login- suspend particular user account
  • Email-based self-registration- for enabling users to create their own accounts
  • External database- account details are located on an external database
  • Moodle Network authentication- how different Moodle sites can connect and authenticate users
  • No authentication- or testing purposes or if the Moodle site is not available on the Internet
