  1. CourseUserLoad service may not report some data load errors.

    In some cases, the CourseUserLoad service doesn't always identify reported errors so they then don't convery to the staff.

  2. Ares LTI is inconsistent about setting user's types to Instructor.

    When an existing user comes into Ares through LTI with the role of Instructor, their Ares user type will be set to Instructor only if Ares needs to create the course. If the course already exists, they will be assigned as the instructor but their Ares user type can remain as User.

  3. When cloning a course in the web, Ares item with document type 'Create' ignore the ForceReviewOnClone setting for their DocumentType.

    This may be an opportunity to just remove the "Create" option in favor of instructors just uploading docs or pdf files.

  4. Invalid start date error

    In CreateNewCourse of main.pas, there is code using the FSemester values before the FSemester.Name has been set causing log statements to show invalid start date. The use of FSemester.StartDate and FSemester.StopDate shouldn't be used until FSemester.Name has been set.

  5. The cursor appears in the username field of the Ares Client logon form when it opens without being focused

    When the Ares client is opened, it looks like the cursor is focused on the username field, but you are not able to type until you click it again.

  6. InstructorDisplayName does not load correctly

    The #CourseInstructor tag does not correctly load the InstructorDisplayName (although it does correctly write to Instructor). This tag should load a value from the InstructorDisplayName field.

  7. Instructor not added as instructor when creating course

    When an Instructor or FullProxy creates a course:
    - The course's Instructor field is set to the instructor's name (should be left blank)
    - They are not assigned as a user for the course

    As a result, the instructor receives the following message:
    "Your course has been added to Ares. You do not have the authorization to access this course. "

  10. Empty messages can be submitted to the Ares board but they never show up

    When submitting a message to the Ares message board you can "submit" an empty message without any error message but the message doesn't show up. There is not currently an error message that will pop up if the message or subject fields are left blank.

  13. Brightspace LTI Vulnerability

    A vulnerability was discovered in the LTI standard that allows people to construct a link which uses the attacker's session and could trick a user into performing actions with the attacker's identity. Atlas is working with Brightspace to ensure Ares accommodates any functional changes Brightspace will be making to combat this vulnerability.

    For more information, see https://community.brightspace.com/s/article/Update-on-LTI-Vulnerability-LTI-Launch-with-New-Security-Requirements

  15. LTI Content Item Selection Request in Moodle does not appear on the first load

    Workaround: Redirecting back and forth by clicking another tab will make the button appear since it will prompt the buttons populated on the LTIContentItem.js to become visible in the frame.

  16. User Subscriptions for courses are removed during CourseUserLoads

    Even though a user subscribes to an instructors course by toggling the subscription on, if course user loads are performed to add new users then all subscriptions to the course will be deleted. This is because all course users and their subscriptions are being deleted and then re-added during course user loads without any original subscription preferences.

  20. The Show Tag Editor button is improperly aligned

    The show tag editor button is not aligned to float to the right above the Reserve Items table.

    To fix the "Show Tag Editor" button so it appears on the right side of the page instead of up against the "Save Item Order" button on the left, add the text below to main.css right below the .float-left entry (default row 978)

    .float-right {
    float: right;
    }
