  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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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. "

  11. Duplicate courses can be created unintentially from the CourseValidation table

    When creating a course through the Course Validation, if an instructor clicks the back button in the browser after adding a course, then clicks the Add Course button again a duplicate course would be created from the same record.

  12. Web Alert Validation Inconsistency

    It is possible to save a Username alert with no Username.
    Selecting the Status type does not supply a default Specifier, but selecting Type does supply one.

  13. 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.

  15. LoanPeriod and PickupLocation fields are hidden on the Reserve Item Request Form

    See the image below for an example.

    Workaround: The workaround for this is to make sure the #LoanPeriodDiv only contains the #OPTION tag, making sure that all of the surrounding HTML is contained within the #OPTION tag's headerText and footerText properties.

  17. When cloning an item in the web, routing rules are not applied when the new item's final status is set

    For example, changing an item's status from CurrentStatus to PendingActivation will not apply any rules which also prevents any custom routing rules from being applied to items cloned from this item.

  18. Cloning course items in the web does not provide a username entry for the new item's first history entry

    In the web, clone a course and select at least one item. When viewing the item history for the newly cloned item, the first entry 'Status changed to Item Submitted via Cloned Course' will have an empty string for the username.

  20. 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
