EVS Weekly Tech Meeting

Discussion Points:

  • LexEVS
    • Rob deployed 6.5 Dev DB refresh
    • A mass VS load was done on Data QA
    • We asked if the 6.5.1 (dev snapshot) is on NCI dev
      • 6.5.1 (dev snapshot)  LexEVS Remote API is on NCI dev
    • The SIW code is working for them.
  • Browser/Tools
    • Rob found an issue. "Show other" link isn't behaving properly with redirecting.  This is being investigated, but not a show stopper.
  • Data
    • 4 new versions have been uploaded.
  • Systems
    • AHP → Jenkins migration - this will require some effort from the LexEVS team.  The systems team will provide the server for this.
  • Triple Store/EVS API
    • Ticket has been submitted to move these up the tiers.

Decision Points:

  • Kim would like to see the Java doc for the LexEVS Remote API.  Scott will point him to it.

New Rest Service Plugin for LexEVS

Discussion Points: 

Decision Points:

NCI Metathesaurus namespace - ns1363824265

Discussion Points: 

Decision Points:

  • We agreed to create a JIRA item to capture this.
Value Set Updates -
  • What is the criteria to determine a value set needs to be updated

Discussion Points: 

  • What indicates a value set has changed and needs to be reloaded? We will need to discuss what constitutes a change with the team.
  • A value set definition changes when:
    • Published value set value is yes (and didn't exist before)
    • Definition changes
    • TDS location changes
  • Resolved VS 
    • Every RVS may need to be updated each time there is a new version of NCIt, because it is resolved against the new version.
  • There may be some simple comparisons that can be made that will work well.
  • Would we be able to use the value set change history?
    • If a value set is updated based on the history, we could reload it.

Decision Points:

  • The Mayo team will set up a meeting to discuss this and other value set issues and their priorities.
Curation tool - Hierarchy Discussion

Discussion Points: 

  • The initial code was not robust.  Changes were suggested by Scott/Tracy.

Decision Points:

Backlog grooming - plan meeting

Discussion Points: 

  • The development team will meet first to groom the backlog and then we will set up a meeting with the extended team to review and prioritize the backlog.

Decision Points:

  • Development team will set up meeting with the extended team for backlog grooming.
