Maintenance: Remove authorizer instance variable on ApplicationController #2585

@kevinrobinson kevinrobinson commented Sep 4, 2019

This is for after #2584 lands.

In #2584, it came up that instance variables on ApplicationController leak across calls to controller actions in rspec tests. This is not how I thought it worked, but turns out all the other uses of tests like this never came across this particular combo. Those kinds of tests are useful for exhaustively testing authorization rules for a given setup (eg across combinations of things like [educator, student]).

This removes the instance variable in ApplicationController related to authorization; it's not doing much there. This has no impact on authorization rules.
