    • Type: New Feature
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 1.9.5, 2.3
    • Fix Version/s: 2.3
    • Component/s: Administration

      Testing difficulty: HARD. This depends on a response from the server. The best way to test all possible cases is to deploy a fake.php script (attached) and set $CFG->alternativeupdateproviderurl to point to it. To test cron, you may want to execute

      delete from mdl_config_plugins where plugin='core_plugin';

      to make sure that the first cron execution will actually execute the fetch. Also consider setting $CFG->divertallemailsto so that you catch all emailed notifications.
