  • CDEBROWSER-876 CDE Browser 508-compliance Report Remediation (May 20) is complete.

*Note that the XML File download was updated via script to add Value Meaning Concept Origin and Concept Order to the XML Download in July 2018, there was no software release via Tradkers CDEBROWSER-873 and CDEBROWSER-879.

Known Issues

JIRA TrackerProposed Feature

Add a More Details link on the Data Element Concept tab to view additional information about the Object Class and Associations.

Workaround: None. The More Details tab was used to view associations between Object Classes when loading UML Models into caDSR. This feature is a low priority and has not been slated for a future release. Please contact the CBIIT help desk if this feature is needed.


Make the CDE Other Version a clickable link.

In version 4.0.5 of CDE Browser, other versions of a CDE were links. The current technology, however, does not allow for new windows/pop-ups.

Workaround: Perform another search in CDE Browser to search All Versions instead of the Latest version. This will be fixed in a future release.


Add the Catalogue of Published Forms to the NCIP Context.

Workaround: View the forms in each Context node. This will be considered for re-implementation in future release.


Display more than 50 alphabetical results in the type-ahead search filter.

Workaround: Add a wildcard to the search to return more results. 


Add a URL link to the CDEs from Form Builder.

  • Form Builder needs to be updated to change the syntax of the link.
