    Description

      I've been reviewing a previous tracker https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MOBILE-2532 as it describes what appears to be the same issue we're currently having with the Mobile App v4.0 (older versions as well).

      Students & Instructors who have been given permission to access hidden courses can not do so through the Mobile App but can through a web/mobile browser.

      This may be directly related to current limitations of Moodle's WebService as described in a separate and unresolved tracker (https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-74176).

      However, it was unclear from the closed MOBILE-2532 tracker if a solution was in fact implemented and we're seeing a relapse of the same issue OR if the issue was never fully resolved because it's a bigger problem further up the code chain.

      From the MOBILE-2532 tracker:
      "Student enrolled in a hidden course: The course is NOT returned by the WebService, so it's not displayed. In web I cannot see the course either in Site Home.
      Admin or teacher enrolled in a hidden course: The course is returned with visibility=0, so the app displays it but marks it as not accessible. In web I can see the course AND access it.”
