The create-course-directory command-line tool creates a directory for a course with a given course ID in /courses/ and assigns appropriate permissions for that course and roles.  If the course ID corresponds to a course (as opposed to an organization), a directory is also created in /library/eReserves. The course must already exist in Blackboard Learn.

Course directories cannot be created by cutting and pasting or copying folders in the operating system. You must use the command line tool or the user interface.
