  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  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. 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.

  14. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.
