Patches

• 5.1.4 - patch release - 2019/07/24

This patch release resolves the following issues in the 5.1.0 client tools:

  • The following issues in DFexplore have been corrected:
      1. In the DFopen_patient_binder() function, do not refresh the subject binder until all of the actions have been executed.
      2. If a field requires a (new) reason, and the reason is added using the metadata panel, the Add Reason dialog still appears when leaving the field. The dialog should not appear.
      3. In Data view, if Field > Revert is chosen or the Revert to Old Value button is clicked in the reason dialog, the data field becomes read-only. The read-write state should not change.
      4. If no legal range is defined and the field data value is reset to the No Choice or Not Checked value, the resolved Missing Value query is not updated. The query should be automatically un-resolved.
      5. To be compatible with the update to include user-defined properties in the next release, the data type for edit check symbols has been updated to 16-bit from 8-bit.
      6. Previous behavior in DFexplore with respect to the column headings used during data export has been restored, so that the field description is not used by default.
      7. An overflow condition that could cause DFbatch to lose contact with the study server has been corrected.
  • The following issue in DFadmin has been corrected:
    1. The action of DFadmin when loading user/role/permissions has been sped up significantly by optimizing order of operations.

• 5.1.3 - patch release - 2019/06/06

dfdiscover-sp513.tar (2.5 MB)

This change corrects a bug in DFedcservice. The API request 'recordsbyname' with 'allfields' parameter does not return the documented record structure for new records, and includes only the internal module and field IDs. The expected record structure in JSON should include module names, module reference number and field names.
The correction is available as a server-side patch. The patch is released as a tar image that contains DFedcservice only. Note that this patch also includes the fixes of the 5.1.1 patch release.
To install the patch:
  1. Download the tar image for the patch to /tmp. Then as super-user:
  2. # cd /opt/dfdiscover
  3. # tar xf /tmp/dfdiscover-sp513.tar
  4. # /opt/dfdiscover/SETPERMS

The patch can be installed on a live system. After installation, restart the DFdiscover server.


• 5.1.1 - patch release - 2019/02/28

dfdiscover-sp511.tar (2.5 MB)

This change corrects a bug in DFedcservice. In the specific case where a record with a level of 2 or higher is being saved back to level 1, it is possible for query records updated via the API to not save the new or updated text of a query reply.
The correction is available as a server-side patch. The patch is released as a tar image that contains DFedcservice only.
To install the patch:
  1. Download the tar image for the patch to /tmp. Then as super-user:
  2. # cd /opt/dfdiscover
  3. # tar xf /tmp/dfdiscover-sp511.tar
  4. # /opt/dfdiscover/SETPERMS

The patch can be installed on a live system. After installation, restart the DFdiscover server.
