Hi Tom


​Ha ha, sorry I didn't notice that. It does seem strange though that you are experiencing LTI issues with 2 system at a similar time...

Hi, John.

Heh. Yeah, that's actually me there. I'm having the same problem in two places, it seems.

I'll have to check with my coworkers, but I think no one is entirely sure when it stopped working properly, unfortunately--I get the impression WebPA wasn't heavily used (if it was used at all) over the summer. I'll try updating the building block and I'll let you know what happens.

I see no reason why it should not be working with that version of Learn 9.  Have you seen it working since upgrading to Q2 2017?  However, the version of the building block is now 2.5 years old, I would recommend that you try updating this to see if that has any effect.

        Hi, Stephen.

        I know we had an upgrade back in mid-August, but I'll have to
        check to see if we've had any subsequent updates. We're using
        the BasicLTI building block, and as far as I can tell, all of
        the connections to the other tools are working all right with
        the exception of two--a second one to WebPA we've set up for
        testing (which doesn't work at all), and a link to Xerte.
        (Incidentally, the Xerte link is exhibiting some of the same
        persistent-link, one-entry-per-course behavior. I don't know if
        there's some connection between the tw<https://maps.google.com/?q=there's+some+connection+between+the+tw&entry=gmail&source=g>o problems.)

             This sounds like very odd behaviour.

             Has your Learn server been updated recently?  Are you using the
             BasicLTI building block to connect to WebPA, or the core LTI
             functionality in Learn 9, or something else?  Are all other LTI
             connections configured in the same way working?

                 Hello, all.

                 We've got an odd problem with our WebPA installation, or
                 possibly with the way our Blackboard system is talking
        to it,
                 and I hope someone can give me an idea of what's going on.

                 After working normally for a while, recently (within
        the last
                 five to six months) WebPA has started behaving
        unexpectly. You
                 can still create a form and assessment and link to them
        from a
                 course in Blackboard, but then:

                 - Any subsequent WebPA entries created in that course
        will point
                 to the same assessment as the previous one.

                 - Any changes in one entry will be reflected in the
        other(s).

                 - Only one column will be created in the grade centre,
                 regardless of how many WebPA entries are on the course.

                 This is just an educated specul<https://maps.google.com/?q=%C2%A0+%C2%A0+%C2%A0+%C2%A0+This+is+just+an+educated+specul&entry=gmail&source=g>ation--I'm new to WebPA, and
                 new-ish to Blackboard--but it sounds as if an initial
        database
                 record is being created when the first WebPA link is
        created,
                 and then every link after that points to the same record.

                 I could be wrong, of course. Has anyone had a similar
        problem,
                 or have any insight to what might be going on? Thanks
        in advance.
