Action Items

 #AssignedDescriptionDate IdentifiedDue DateDate CompletedStatus

Provide example code to assist us with the understanding of the handling of value sets as coding schemes.  This understanding will assist in our development of a Value Set Entity Search (GF#32794) which is part of the Term Browser 2.3 scope.

Provide a convenience method for resolving value sets from a resolved concept reference.

Area of InterestDetails
LexEVS 6.1We have been working with the Mayo team to get the deployment of LexEVS 6.1 onto the DEV environment.  This was successfully completed and we are currently evaluating the effects on the EVS tools
Term Browser 2.3 ReleaseFirst glance of the new LexEVS 6.1 shows that there might be more work than first thought with migrating to the new release of the LexEVS API for Term Browser.  The changes made to the value sets breaks the Term Browser code.  We are requesting more specific details on the changes made by the Mayo team.  With the LexEVS 6.3 release value sets are treated as coding schemes but at they do not appear to behave exactly the same.  More investigation is needed.
Term Browser 2.3 ReleaseContinued reviewing the new simplified search capability provided in LexEVS to see how it will fit the searching needs required in the browser.  The goal is to use the new search to replace the current quick search in the browser.  If that is not possible, make it an additional search in the Advanced Search page.

JIRA/Gforge Issues

Issue NumberDescriptionStatus
GF#32772Improve value set accessibility.
  • Refined the UI, state dependent logo, etc. Search for value sets can originate from the source view and terminology view value set home page. It can also originate from a root value set home page. The logo of the value set search results page must reflect the page from which search originates.
  • Repaired a value set check box error. When the user unchecked all value set and presses the search button, a warning message should appear indicating that no value set is selected and that all value set nodes should remain unchecked.
GF#32793Extend the advanced search capability.
  • Started to modify the advanced search page to include CTS2 contains and CTS2 Lucene search options

 Term Browser 2.3 release dependent on the LexEVS 6.1 release. Mayo team says that they will start deployment through the tiers the second week in July pending any additional work needed on the Value Set resolution performance.  Operations team is loading the value sets into DEV through this week and we can then evaluate the performance.
