Cannot edit student's section without Users - Students permission enabled

Cannot edit student's section without Users - Students permission enabled

Canvas white logo

This behavior is resolved in the 2022-02-16 deploy.

 

Description


Teachers without permission to add and remove a student from the course cannot manage the student’s sections with the Users - manage students in course permission enabled as described in our documentation. Attempting to do so results in an unauthorized error.

Expected Behavior


Teachers should be able to edit a student’s sections in their course with the Users - manage students in course permission enabled.

Workaround


enable Users - add/remove permissions

Steps to Reproduce

 

  1. Create a custom course role based off Teacher permissions with the Users - Students add/remove permissions disabled

  2. Create a course with two sections with a custom teacher role and a student enrolled in the first section

  3. As the teacher, attempt to add the student to the second section

  4. Note that you receive a “something went wrong updating the user’s section. please try again later” and “oops the last request didn’t work out” error message and that the change did not occur
