Ficus.2, a New Release to Fix a Certificates Issue on the Open edX Platform

EdX engineers launched this week Ficus.2, the second version of the Open edX’s Ficus release in order to implement some fixing:

  • The certificates process was restarting constantly, due to not being able to communicate with XQueue.
  • If you used the password randomization step during installation, a database user named “edxapp_replica001” is created. This username is invalid because it is too long. This issue is now fixed: the randomization step no longer creates a separate user for the replica database.
  • The help links in LMS and Studio now display the Ficus version of the docs, rather than the latest version.

More details in the release notes.
