      Description

      Inspired by MDL-53563:

      Add a WS that allows to set/change/reset config settings

      When implemented, update: https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Web_service_API_functions

      Security notice:
      We may not want to allow any actions that are not allowed in the web interface, for example:

      • reading configuration settings defined in config.php , including but not limited to DB password (writing to them will not do anything anyway but we could return a warning)
      • reading or writing configuration settings that do not have UI for changing them (we have several of them, for example "upgrade script run")
