      For this patch you need a Moodle instance with a site administrator whose authentication method isn't manual.

      1. Create a user upload CSV with at least one row. Include said site administrator.
      2. Attempt the upload. Verify that the tool doesn't update the site administrator. Verify that the status page reports the site administrator's actual authentication method.

      Description

      admin/tool/uploaduser always reports a site administrator's authentication method as 'manual' (the default) because it tests for site admin before loading the authentication method. This is misleading.
