      Description

      From "Kusnetz, Jeremy" <JKusnetz@apus.edu> in sakai-dev.

      We make extensive use of functions.required to give instructors and students a different set of tools in our instance.

      We found that the list of tools in the dropdown are just all the tools in the site, regardless of what the user should be seeing. I found JIRA SAK-22982 but it doesn’t look like any work has started on it yet. In my opinion this is a pretty major bug. While clicking on a tool you aren’t supposed to have access to doesn’t actually go to that tool, it’s still a very confusing experience for the user to see tools that they shouldn’t.
