    Description

      When i tried to create a new group in a course, my username and password were pre-populated in the group id and the password for the group.
      step 1: create group in a course
      step 2: look at the pre-populated fields (group id and password) they are the same as my LDAP username and password.

      I had a colleague log in on my machine with his credentials and my details were pre-populated.

      When my colleague logged in on his machine his details were pre-populated

      My thoughts are if they are pre-populating here then were else are they populating.

      I have cleared cache. logged out then back in again

      Regards
      Brendan
