  1. 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.

  2. 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. "

  5. 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.

  8. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  15. 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;
    }

  16. Removing Shared List from course does not remove related items

    Removing shared list items from a course can leave orphaned records in the database since it only removes the one item and not related items.

  17. The clear button in the web does not clear forms that have already been submitted

    Rather than clearing the form, the clear button resets the values it had when it was submitted. Essentially the clear button operates more like an undo button.

  19. The Delete Shared List function doesn't prompt the "Are you sure you want to delete this shared list?" warning

    When deleting a shared list in the Ares pages, the Delete Shared List function doesn't run and give the "Are you sure you want to delete this shared list?" warning. This also happens with disassociating the course.

  20. Can't apply routing rules to shared list items created via the client

    Items created in the Ares client through Shared Lists do not get handled by the routing rules, instead they are sent straight to the Item Submitted>Awaiting Reserves Processing queue.

    Shared List item routing does work from the web when routing on the Item Submitted status.
