Clarification regarding update Metadata Sharing packages to the latest versions of CIEL concepts


While I was following the steps given here for updating the metadata sharing packages, I am kind of confused by the following steps:

Go to Administration -> Metadata Sharing -> Export Metadata and choose a package (repeat b. and c. for the following packages: Reference Application Concepts, Reference Application Diagnoses, Reference Application Order Entry and Allergies Concepts )

  1. Click New Version.
  2. Follow the creating package wizard leaving all defaults.

When, I logged into, there are no packages located there. Can someone please check it out and clarify this step ?

Somehow related to this: Metadata sharing nolonger on the mdsbuilder

@ball could you be having a backup of these packages?

Unfortunately, I never backed up these packages. Apologies, @dkayiwa

@dkayiwa, I am able to view the page but there are no packages there, all I get is this screen:

Maybe @raff could help?

Any updates regarding this? It’s currently a blocker for me @c.antwi , I guess we can discuss this during the meeting tonight.

(Discussed on the Strategy and Operations call today, and Daniel let us know that Rafal had a backup, and thus we were able to rebuild the server, and Reuben was unblocked.)

Were any new concepts created for the ref app that should be in CIEL?? CIEL must be able to support Ref App as an over-write. Can someone confirm whether any new concepts were created for 2.9 that are NOT in CIEL?

Can anyone let me know about my request?

@raff @dkayiwa would you be able to help answer @akanter 's question?

Nonetheless, I don’t know if this helps but I have used the SQL dump which you had given me access to so ,logically speaking , I don’t think anyone would’ve added anything extra to it in the past few days. However, I would still wait for a confirmation from @raff especially since he had restored a backup to the server recently (after I had used the SQL dump from Dropbox)

Thanks, but I think the question was whether anyone added concepts prior to a few days ago. The MDS builder simply adds a subset of CIEL, but doesn’t delete any that are already there… unless the only think included are the MDS concepts…

@akanter, all concepts bundled with RA are in CIEL.
