      Description

      When importing a forum with "Subscription mode" set to "Auto subscription", already enrolled users are not subscribed to the forum. Expected behaviour from my point of view would be that alle participants are subscribed to the imported forum. Switching the subscription mode from auto subscription to optional subscription and back will result in the enrolled users being subscribed.

      To reproduce:

      1. Create a course: Course_1
      2. Create a forum in Course_1 with subscription mode set to "auto subscription"
      3. Create a course: Course_2
      2. Enroll students to Course_2
      3. Import all contents from Course_1 into Course_2
      4. The list of subscribers to this forum is empty
