  3. 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.

  9. Items uploaded through the Ares API are routed incorrectly in 5.0

    Items uploaded through the API are being routed incorrectly. An item's documenttype is logged correctly, but not saved to the database until after routing occurs, which makes routing based on the documenttype impossible.

  11. New Staff Users unable to log in

    When a new staff user is created in the Staff Manager, their password is not saved in the correct format. This means that the user will be unable to log in to any of the Ares client apps.

    Workaround: Have a staff user change that user's password in the staff manager. This will cause it to be saved correctly, so they'll be able to log in.

  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.
