Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to a certain user snapshot (note issue may not occur to all users).
  2. Click on the curricula menu (if not the first in the related section) and error appears; otherwise if curricula is listed first the error when the user snapshot page is loading.


When certain curricula with 9 line items when all contents is expanded (including the folder lines), it can sometimes but not always expose the possible bug/defect when assigned to users.


When a subcurricula contains the parent curricula assignment (recursive curricula assignment).


  1. Issue resolved in b1811 via LRN-44194 for the line items defect (patched in 1808p21).
  2. Issue resolved in b1908 via LRN-58836 for the recursive curricula defect (patched in 1905p5).


  • Modify the user snapshot to not show curricula as first tab so the user snapshot can load.
  • Use report when tring to determine which users have a current assigned or completed curricula.
  • Use the user search with criteria of curricula to determine any users as requried.
  • Use left Ctrl+Shift while clicking on user to expand to older view with seperate curricula tab.
