Issue ID

Issue Description



Rave_biostat adapter needs to read and write the source data as it is, into the stream_querydetails dataset without dropping any patient record. This check is applicable to all clinical and operational datasets.

The Rave_biostat adapter is working as expected for stream_querydetails table. The table is populated with the EDC data without any data mismatch.

Biostat adapter in CDH is also verified for other datasets and data load is working as expected. Reports are also verified.


The Rave_biostat adapter was not pulling other biostat clinical datasets for studies that have space (‘ ‘) in the Study Alias field. This is a rare scenario but it was impacting one study in the CDH portfolio.

This issue was identified and planned as a patch fix and is resolved with this release. The Rave_biostat adapter data pull is working as expected; irrespective of the naming convention followed in the Study Alias field.
