Add a button to refresh Access Control Lists for LMS groups
We've recently enabled some settings to ease the process of getting students access to evergreen content that is outside of the actual course folder.
The only use case that I have that is without a solution is when there is a defined body of content outside of the course folder but the instructor wants to share this other folder instead of sharing links to the videos directly. If they share a video, it works. If they share the course folder inside the LMS, it works. When they share a video/playlist inside the LMS through the Embed LTI, it works for the most part. When they share another folder that they've added the course group to, but they are not using the course folder or something else, those groups are never updated with students so they don't do anything.
If there was a button to manually refresh a group, that would at least ease that pain and allow the instructor to update permissions to a moment in time. Ideally, this setting we turned on would also work to simply update the course ACL instead of provisioning moment-in-time access.
As a side note, I think that the LTI embed should work as the "Attempt Permissions Sync on Request Access Page" setting does now. The embed shouldn't add them to a new list, it should just give them permission to view, while the above setting should actually add the user to an ACL IMHO.
