Developer Features in 23R1

We are pleased to bring you the following additions and enhancements to Developer Portal features in 23R1. REST API features added in 23R1 only affect API v23.1, unless otherwise specified.


Release Date: February 10, 2023

Data Added via the API has a Read-only Option

When an Event Date or Item value is set via the API and marked as Externally Owned, EDC marks that Event Date or Item as read-only and prevents changes. Organizations can choose to move their active integrations forward to use this feature. Otherwise, they can stay on earlier API versions.

With the APIs listed below, users can set the externally_owned parameter to true (default when omitted) to indicate that the value should be treated as Externally Owned:

With the property set, site users that attempt Reset Form cannot unset values. To unset the property through the API, pass false to the endpoint / location (Event Date or Items on a Form).

As part of this feature, we made the following changes to API responses:

Retrieve Coding Definitions Returns Dictionary Version

Retrieve Coding Definitions now returns the Dictionary Version for each Form location that is configured for medical coding.

Start Study Data Extract Job Supports the Boolean Formatting Property

This endpoint now supports the boolean_formatting parameter, which controls the SDE option used for formatting checkboxes and boolean field values. The default is y_n, which was the behavior prior to the v23.1 release.


Release Date: December 16, 2022

There were no customer-facing features in this release. This release fixed issues and improved internal infrastructure.
