API Meeting/Discussion Update

  • Bron and Tracy are out today.
  • Scott gave a quick overview of the last meeting.  Much of the time was discussing and documenting the existing architecture.
  • Margaret suggested this meeting should include requirements gathering and gap determination as well as day to day needs.

Decision Points:

  • Scott will send a link to the slides to Margaret and Lyubov.

Empty value sets - Update (Rob)

Discussion Points:

  •  VS have loaded last night on Dev.
  • Should we load empty VS?  Rob suggested that it may be OK.
    • The browser should be able to handle an empty VS.

Decision Points:

Resolved Value Set rework

Discussion Points:

  • Resolved VS were persisted in the past.  They are now dynamically resolved (without being persisted).
  • VS definitions are still be persisted to the system.
  • We depend upon the resolved VS for the existing CTS2 REST API.
    • The lexevs resolved value set API will need to be updated to still return the resolved value sets.
  • The VS search API will change (source asserted API).  The browser will need to use the new API.

Decision Points:

  • Rob suggested that this scenario should work:
    • Browser - If multiple value sets are selected, and one is empty, the browser should still get results back.
    • If a user clicks on the empty value set in the hierarchy, they should be able to see the value set information and an empty value set.
      • The user currently see a "null" response.
