19R3 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 19R3, so our maintenance releases for this version are 19R3.0.3, 19R3.0.5, and so on.

Release Number: 19R3.0.19 | Build Number: 742

With this release, Data Workbench application users automatically have a “workbench” directory in their user directory, to be used when importing 3rd party data into Data Workbench. We also added a new “_processed” directory within “workbench”, where Vault moves ZIP files after they are imported into Data Workbench (in subdirectories by Study and then by Source). Any files that weren’t imported successfully into Data Workbench will remain in the root “workbench” directory. This enhancement enables users to more easily track the files that were successfully imported.

Category Issue Description Issue No.
Data Workbench Data Workbench doesn't import data files unless the user who uploaded the file has the Vault Owner security profile. With this release, any user with access to the Data Workbench application, the Objects: Study: Read permission, and permission to access the API and the FTP staging server can upload files to Data Workbench using the FTP staging server. VDC-40412
Jobs Running an EDC Review State job in a Vault with a large number of items results in an error message and failure of the job. VDC-38990
