      Description

      The Function list on the Web service test client (Site administration / Development) only shows the old moodle_* functions which have, according to the http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Web_services_Roadmap, been deprecated. The core_user_* functions should be added to the test client so that web services using the new core_user_* methods can be tested when an admin wants to test a web service that uses those functions.

      Example:

      Some of the old functions currently available in the test client are:
      moodle_user_create_users()
      moodle_user_delete_users()
      moodle_user_get_users_by_id()
      moodle_user_update_users()

      Some of the new functions that are NOT available in the test client are:
      core_user_create_users()
      core_user_get_users_by_id()
      core_user_delete_users()
      core_user_update_users()

          I think the admin client should be generated automatically for any functions and it should use the Moodle protocol clients. In my opinion it's a minor issue, I lower the priority if everybody is ok.

          I opened a duplicated as MDL-33059 which ask to fix a bit more, so I'm closing this issue even thought it was written before. Thanks Luis.
