Institutional Hierarchy and Tool Availability

Question asked by jb22661 on Nov 7, 2016

We create courses via SIS Framework and run a script to assign them to an Institutional Hierarchy node. We recently realized Tool availability in each course is set by the Tools in the node, not in the System Admin Tools area.

 

If you change the availability of a tool in a IH node, it doesn’t change for any subnodes. Therefore, there is no practical way to change the tool availability in Institutional Hierarchies when you have thousands of nodes.

 

Has anyone come up with a way around this (or are we missing something)?

 

How are the default settings for Tools in each node determined in the first place?

 

Thanks
