if anyone’s curious about how to disable the learning MFE in Maple, it looks like there are two Waffle flags that you’ll need to set:
- courseware.use_legacy_frontend — setting this to On for everyone disables the learning MFE
- course_home.course_home_use_legacy_frontend — setting this to On for everyone creates non-MFE links on the Dashboard.
If you set just one but not the other, your learners will end up with a dashboard that has MFE links to courses — which, then, don’t go anywhere.
Also, please note that the documentation for the LEARNING_MICROFRONTEND_URL setting currently still indicates that you must set
courseware.courseware_mfe for the learning MFE to become effective. As far as I can make out, that warning is incorrect as of this PR:
The logic is now such that you don’t need to set the
courseware.courseware_mfe Waffle flag to enable the learning MFE; rather, you need to set the flags described above to disable it.
