      1. Enable shibboleth authentication.
      2. Turn on developer-level debugging.
      3. Add a custom profile field of type "Dropdown menu".
      4. Login with shibboleth.

      You shouldn't get any notices.

      If the tester doesn't have a shibboleth installation handy, it can be 'faked' in apache as follows:

      1. Enable shibboleth authentication in moodle.
      2. In moodle shibboleth config, set Username to "eppn".
      3. Place an .htaccess file in auth/shibboleth containing: SetEnv eppn "test@example.com"
      4. Logout of the site
      5. Visit the URL auth/shibboleth/index.php

      This should log you in as user test@example.com. Again, verify that no messages were generated.

    Description

      If a custom user profile menu field is defined, then Shibboleth login will generate a developer error during login:

      Coding problem: $PAGE->context was not set. You may have forgotten to call require_login() or $PAGE->set_context(). The page may not display correctly as a result

      This was partially fixed in MDL-27563 for auth/shibboleth/login.php. The issue in this ticket relates to auth/shibboleth/index.php.
