Starting from this release the username can be changed in OpenOlat. Until now this was not possible due to many dependencies of the identity object. Now the dependencies of user names have been removed from the login process.
The default configuration automatically uses the new identity.name scheme.
An opt-out configuration allows to use the old schema with authentication.authusername as identity.name during identity generation (subsequent renaming is not possible). The configuration is done via a global flag in the olat.local.properties. This allows systems using other authentication providers like LDAP, Shibboleth or oAuth to keep the previous handling of user names.
If BigBlueButton meetings are recorded, the publication of the recordings can now be controlled specifically. For this purpose, a list of participants is kept for each recording, which makes it possible to release the recording for different groups of participants:
In addition, an infrastructure was created that allows BBB recordings to be stored on an OpenCast Opencast server. A re-integration of these recordings at other OpenOlat locations is possible via the OpenCast Opencast module.
With the course element OpenCastOpencast, recordings of meetings and courses stored on an OpenCast Opencast server can be integrated into OpenOlat courses. The configuration and connection of the OpenCast Opencast server is done in the administration. In the course element either single videos or whole series can be integrated.
The JDBC driver for MySQL has been updated. Please check if the timezone is set in the database, because the driver does not accept undefined timezones.
SET GLOBAL Time_Zone = 'Europe/Zurich';
The following parameter should be checked in the olat.local.properties:
The connection collation attribute is mandatory for a few queries in OpenOlat. Please set this attribute with the same collation that is used in the database.
