Service Update 2022-01-27

Please note: This update will be applied at the end of business hours on Jan 27th  for the North America, Canada, and European clouds and the end of business hours on Jan 28th for the Asia-Pacific and Australia clouds.

  • Added a new aggregate usage report, showing creation history grouped by stream creation source (P4W, Zoom, WebAPI, etc.)
  • Unified the headers in the folder storage report to align on session (rather than a mix of session and video).
  • Fixed an issue where the Folder Storage usage report was greatly inflating stored and archived session and hour totals.
  • Fixed an issue where the Folder Storage usage report could time out for large sites.
  • Fixed an issue where the session analytics dashboard couldn't load for archived sessions.
  • Fixed an issue with the Public REST API where updating session metadata failed for reference copies.
  • Fixed an issue with user deletion where users who had previously created a playlist could not be deleted. 
  • Fixed an issue with clips where the clip source video could not be moved to the recycle bin even if the referencing video was in the recycle bin.
  • Fixed an issue with viewing reference copies where PDF files were not displayed in the viewer.
  • Fixed an issue with simultaneously importing ASR captions while adding new user-created captions where the caption edits failed to apply.
  • Fixed an issue with editing captions on copied videos where the caption edits were not processed.
  • Fixed an issue with reference copies where the source video could not be moved to the recycle bin even if the referencing video was in the recycle bin.
  • Fixed an issue with keyboard invocation of "create reference copy" on the "manage" page of the video settings modal.
  • Fixed an issue with keyboard accessibility of the "references" page of the video settings modal.
  • Modified the behavior of batch copy in the session list to stop appending the text "(copy)" to video titles.
  • Fixed an issue with reference copies where the "start date" did not match the start date of the original video.
  • Modified the availability and behavior of the "show archived videos" checkbox in the video list interfaces. The checkbox is now available for folder lists in addition to search results. When enabled, the list will display only archived videos instead of a mix of archived and stored videos.
  • Fixed an issue with restoring an archived video from the search results view where the archive restoration status was not displayed.
  • Fixed an issue where reprocessing certain old videos could cause them to fail to re-publish.
  • Panopto will now import Teams online meetings conducted on private channels. Note that each private channel will need to be independently opted-in and configured for meeting import.
  • Fixed an issue where Panopto did not report to site administrators when the Zoom integration stopped working due to a certain failure mode of Zoom API that happened on rare occasions.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the "Include Zoom Videos" and "Include Scheduled Recordings" Course Copy V2 options to be unintentionally toggled when a user edited an Identity Provider and saved the changes.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause a failure to sync Blackboard Ultra user permissions if the user was unified between a Blackboard Ultra and SAML Identity Provider, and logged in to Panopto using SAML.
  • Fixed an issue when bulk provisioning a Blackboard Ultra Identity Provider that was causing all of the Panopto LTI tools to have exactly the same name. Tools automatically created in Blackboard Ultra will now have distinct names indicating their purpose.
  • Fixed an issue in Course Copy V2 when set to "Enable manual copy of videos from original course" that caused the copy operation to fail after the service update on January 13th.
  • Added the "Enable manual copy of videos from original course" option to Course Copy V2 for D2L integrations. D2L integrations can now set Course Copy V2 to allow manually selecting a source course to copy content from.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause videos embedded in D2L courses that were then copied to fail to grant the proper permissions for users in the new course.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause a refresh loop when token-based authentication is enabled if a user tried to access embedded content in some LMS's while already signed into Panopto using a different Identity Provider.
  • Fixed an issue with folder hierarchy that could cause errors in provisioning if the Identity Provider did not have a root folder set.
  • Fixed an issue where videos with special characters in the description would fail to load when embedded with LTI.
  • Fixed a bug that was preventing folders tied to a Moodle course from displaying the "Overview" page if Course Copy V2 was set to "Enable manual copy of videos from original course" for the Moodle Identity Provider.
  • Added a new endpoint to the Panopto public REST API to allow an administrator to get a list of partially or completely viewed sessions for a specified user. The new endpoint is "Panopto/Users/{id}/sessions/viewed". Please see the REST API documentation for more information (https://demo.hosted.panopto.com/Panopto/Api/Docs/index.html)
  • Added a volume slider to the Remote Recorder Live Monitor control.
  • Fixed an issue where deleting a user who owned a Remote Recorder registration key could leave that key inoperable.
  • Fixed an issue where many "Primary Device Disconnected" emails could be sent if only the audio or video device disconnected, but not both.
  • Addressed keyboard accessibility issues with the Home and Department Home pages.
  • "No publisher" emails to admins now have a link to the folder requiring publisher approval. This email is sent to admins when a video is uploaded to a folder requiring publisher approval but does not currently have a user with the publisher role assigned.
  • Fixed an issue with the Embed API where the onLoginShown event no longer fired when the “Use Token-Based Authentication for Embedded Content” site setting was enabled. To mitigate the issue we previously recommended that impacted customers disable this site setting. This is no longer needed and we recommend that customers re-enable the setting to allow users to access embedded videos when their browsers are set to block third-party cookies.
  • Fixed an issue with the Embed API when autoplay is disabled in the browser.
  • Fixed an issue with the Embed API where it incorrectly reported the “finished state” for the onStateChange() event.
  • Added an option to edit a playlist from the playlist picker in the Home and Department Home pages.
  • Scheduled recordings displayed in the Session List are now displayed with their time zones. Note: this only applies if the "Display Age of Videos" setting is enabled.
  • Fixed an issue where recently processed videos could display quizzes or YouTube events at the wrong time, blocking further playback.
  • Fixed an issue with the Department Admin page where user group names were not displayed, when those groups were assigned the Department Admin role.
  • Fixed an issue where webcasts would not play in the Embed player if the Video Podcast Format setting was set to Tile All Streams.
