BU Courses disappearing from Programs Insight


There are two BU MicroMasters programs: Digital Leadership and Digital Product Management. The two programs each have five courses among them, and share three courses: QD505x, QD601x, and QD602x.

Issue Description:
When the course team uses the Programs feature in Insights, they are trying to filter by program. However, when they filter by the DL program, only 2 courses (QD501x and QD502x) are displayed. These are the two courses that are unique to that program. When they filter by DPM, 3 courses (QD503x, QD504x, and QD505x) are displayed. When they filter by both Dl and DPM, they see 5 courses (QD501 - QD505x), excluding two courses (QD601x and QD602x).

(See Screenshots 1, 2, and 3)

Expected behavior:

  • Generalized: When a program filter is applied, all courses in that program should appear regardless of whether they are ALSO part of another program

  • BU example:

    • When I apply the filter for Digital Leadership, I should see 5 courses: QD501x, QD502x, QD505x, QD601x, and QD602x.

    • When I apply the filter for Digital Product Management, I should see 5 courses: QD503x, QD504x, QD505x, QD601x, and QD602x.

    • When I apply both program filters, I see all of the above courses (7 total).

Yes, that is expected since the multi-run functionality has gone into effect for these programs. Looks to be all set! Thank you !

Thanks for the deployment, ! , it looks like the actual courses that are associated with these programs has grown, but it does appear that the initial set of courses are filtered properly now.

we just deployed a fix for this to production (https://insights.edx.org/). Let us know if the issue persists.

Thanks very much for the timeline!

– I'm hoping we can do this next sprint, so realistically ~1 month.

I realize having this bug isn't ideal, but because the partner can still at least see all the courses (by applying multiple filters), I don't think it justifies pulling into this sprint.
