  • Desire to have the settings for Languages (Primary & Secondary) and Currency to remain the same within the Catalog search after being changed once manually by a user.
  • Expectation that the settings within the catalog search to remain the same as those settings within Options & Settings.
  • The language is changed in BizX, however when searching for an item in the Catalog, it is showing in wrong language.
  • What is the behavior of the primary and secondary language in the catalog?

Reproducing the Issue

  1. User perspective: User changed the catalog search settings for primary and secondary language.

  2. User changed the language within Options & Settings. However the language is not being displayed within the catalog search. There are still the settings made in step 1.

Working as designed.


  • The Primary language defaults to the user's options and preference.
  • The secondary language selector field adds the flexibility for end users to explore courses in another language.
  • There is no system default for secondary language in the LMS and can be chosen for any available enabled language in the LMS.
  • Once you picked the secondary language, it sticks even when you log out and log back in. The system does remember your selection.
