      As per https://eduforge.org/tracker/?func=detail&atid=739&aid=3388&group_id=176 (Mahara bug 3388 - Student ID is not passed from Moodle (via XMLRPC))

      When roaming from Moodle 1.9.5+ (20090804) to Mahara 1.1.7testing (2009022620) (via XMLRPC) the student ID is not passed through.

      Penny commented:

      I think maybe the reason this isn't passed from Moodle, is that
      this is a potentially conflictey field.

      Local users may well have their own naming scheme that is the
      way that institution handles idnumbers and they might not want
      remote users coming in with this field, where their idnumbers
      may conflict with the local naming scheme.

      And also:

      Maybe we should file a bug about it on the Moodle tracker and
      discuss there having options to send it or not.

      So here is the bug . I'm afraid I don't know much about the student ID field, so I leave it to you Moodlers to decide whether it can be passed
