20R2 Maintenance Releases

A “maintenance release” is a release that contains fixes for issues that are affecting customers in production environments. We communicate 24 hours prior to the release that we will be applying a maintenance release and that there will be a short service disruption. This list only covers fixes to General Release versions.

The list of fixed issues is not finalized until just before the release occurs. When we identify issues to fix in a maintenance release, we attempt to get them into the earliest release possible. Sometimes, we target a specific release but are not able to deliver a fix early enough for full testing. In situations like this, we postpone the fix for a later release and strike out the description in this list.

We number maintenance releases by appending the number of the maintenance release to the General Release number. Vault CDMS uses odd-numbered releases, while Vault uses even-numbered releases. The most recent General Release was 20R2, so our maintenance releases for this version are 20R2.0.3, 20R2.0.5, and so on.

Release Number: 20R2.0.29 | Build Number: 201 CDB

Join on Subject

Join on Subject is a powerful new way of being able to use multiple forms together in CQL. By default, all Forms are joined together on Subject and on Event when used together in a listing. Joining by subject only allows the builder of a listing to specify that a Form should be joined to the other Form on subject only.

To join on subject, users can append on subject to the form identifier in the selection. The example below would return the items from both the Demographics and Vitals forms in a single row per subject.

SELECT @HDR.Subject, creation_criteria.subject_initials, creation_criteria.subject_dob, vitals.height, vitals.weight, vitals.pulse__bpm_, vitals.systolic_bp__hhMg, vitals.diastolic_bp__hhMg, vitals.temperature
FROM demographics, vitals on subjects
