Improvements to permissions - 3900.39
Blackboard Learn SaaS
Ultra Course View and Original Course View
Impact: All users - system and course roles with corresponding permissions
There are several areas where permission checks do not work as expected. This results in “You’re not on the list” errors. We are making improvements in several upcoming releases that address permission issues. These improvements will also remove the need for a quick enroll option. In this release, we have corrected the following permission issues:
- Managing settings in Course Timeline for graders, course builders, and other non-instructors:
There are non-instructor course roles such as graders and builders. In the past, they could not favorite their courses in the Course Timeline. They also could not choose to hide and show courses. When they had permissions, they could not open courses and make them private. We have corrected these issues in the Course Timeline.
- Access to notification settings for graders, course builders, and other non-instructors:
There are non-instructor course roles such as graders and builders. Users manage their email notification preferences in the Stream. Before users with these roles could not set their email notification preferences. We have corrected this.
- Support users accessing Journals will not receive errors:
There are support users such as administrators who access courses. In the past, these users who accessed a Journal saw error messages in Ultra courses. We have corrected this.
- Improved Rubric access for graders:
In the past, some Rubric grading workflows would cause errors for graders. We have corrected these.
- Improved SCORM access for course builders:
Course builders could receive errors editing SCORM settings. We have corrected this.
- Support users without view enrollment permissions will not see Roster errors:
There are support users who access courses. Sometimes these users do not have permission to view course enrollments. At times, these users would click on the Roster tool and see errors. Now the Roster tool will not appear for these users. They also will not see the Course Faculty section in the Course Outline.
