      Make sure that you can connect to a Backpack and retrieve your badges, i.e. you have Mozilla Persona account and preferably some badges to sync.

      1. Login as a user.
      2. Go to "My profile settings >> Badges >> Backpack settings".
      3. Follow the instructions to connect to your backpack (assuming that it is not connected already).
      4. There should be NO error messages and you should be able to connect to your backpack without any issues.
      5. As a bonus check your Badges page to check that you can see badges from your external backpack.

      This looks similar to https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-49669 which was fixed, but I'm reporting it again here.
