      To tester: Note that the original issue has been divided in two. This issue addresses a setting to include questions in the course backup and MDL-41924 minimizes the number of questions included in each activity.

      COURSE SETUP:

      1. Add a course QUIZCOURSE with a number of different modules including a quiz
      2. Add a course NOQUESTIONCOURSE without a quiz or questions, and some other activities
      3. Add a course QUESTIONONLYCOURSE with questions added to the question bank, but no quiz and some other activities

      B: Automated backups:

      1. Setup automated backups:
        1. Enable backup_auto_active

        3. Set backup_auto_skip_modif_days to Never
        4. Disable backup_auto_skip_modif_prev

        1. Enable backup_auto_questionbank
        2. Run the automated backups CLI tool: admin/cli/automated_backups.php
        3. VERIFY: the state of the backup files is the same as created in steps A1-A3 with question bank setting enabled
      3. Now run automated backups with 'Include question bank' set to enabled
        1. Disable backup_auto_questionbank
        2. Run the automated backups CLI tool: admin/cli/automated_backups.php
        3. VERIFY: the state of the backup files is the same as created in steps A1-A3 with question bank setting disabled.

    Description

      When making a backup of individual quizzes, no matter how many (or how few) quizzes I back up, the backup includes all questions from the question bank, not only those used in the quiz which I'm backing up. So, in an extreme case, if I back up a single quiz, and then restore it to another course, I unintentionally transfer hundreds of questions along with this quiz.

      The same happens when importing a quiz to another course.
