Known Issues

Recording full Classification Scheme Item (CSI) metadata requires a two step process

  1. Create and save the CSI using the CSI tab under the Classification Scheme page
  2. Complete the entry for the CSI by querying it under the new CSI page and updating it there.

The problem is that the CSI screen on its own is unable to link a CSI to a Classification Scheme, and as such any CSI's created using the CSI page alone will be disconnected from other metadata and unusable. Please do not use the "Insert" feature of the CSI page. This process will be corrected in Curation Tool

Value Meaning Updates -- selecting a Concept does not populate related fields

When Value Meanings are created using the new VM page all related fields are populated when a Concept is selected via the List of Values link. For an update of an existing VM only the Concept field is populated from the List of Values page, not the Database and Source information. These will need to be entered manually.
