Add a "force re-publish" flow to address the case of broken dashboard course card images
Related ticket details an investigation done by the Engage Squad for cases where the course image in Publisher/Discovery is fine but the student dashboard does not display that image. We found various varieties of the problem but no root cause, but in all cases a re-publish of the current course run solved the problem by updating platform/Studio with the correct (and correctly named) image.
That re-publish flow requires making a fake edit to enable the “Save & Re-Publish” button in Publisher, which is not ideal. The purpose of this ticket is to investigate options for a simpler “force re-publish” function that can be used for cases like this where we want to refresh downstream data regardless of the Publisher form’s detection of changes having been made locally.
