Hi all, we in the Program theme is planning to deprecate and remove the UI and its related views and URLs associated with the ID verification flow within edx-platform.
- The verify_student app WILL NOT be deleted. We are keeping the ID Verification feature.
- The views like https://github.com/edx/edx-platform/blob/0cc46ca5b07c88757f49ed2dd74ed94902195d8e/lms/djangoapps/verify_student/views.py#L60 would be extracted and simplified.
- There will be some URLs no longer available from https://github.com/edx/edx-platform/blob/0cc46ca5b07c88757f49ed2dd74ed94902195d8e/lms/djangoapps/verify_student/urls.py
We are targeting the removal before Nov 20th.
The reason we are removing the flow is because edX have a new flow developed in frontend-app-account to replace the UI of the flow.
