Content Validation 

  1. Instead of usual manual Content validation, we now just need confirmation that all Projects had automated validation run against them, and were clean before promotion.
  2. New Issues identified by the community from the previous Monthly Release.
    1. Decision on whether to fix the issues:
      1. VERY QUICKLY in time for this upcoming release?
      2. In good time for the next monthly release?

  1. Content Release Lead confirms to Release Manager that all Projects had automated validation run against them, and all issues identified were resolved before promotion. 
  2. MBR: Checked with Yong, changes for MRCM published for July 2022: 

3. Association Records not transferring through to the RF2 files as expected

5. For information, large number of inactivations for ICD-10 maps

  • assertionText: "All active records in extended map refset are valid.",

  • failureCount: 1012,

4Mapping schedule

Chris confirmed today that we would not be able to get the new automated process up and running for this release cycle - therefore need to confirm that everyone is ready to continue with the old manual process for one more cycle?

Ready for testing but no need to rush this cycle - will be ready for May release...

    1.  First rundeck job will pickup the right date from the Release schedule, and then run the data import

    2. Second rundeck job will be run by Maria (once Mapping tasks are complete), to add 2x new task id's into the job and generate the maps

Donna confirmed she's happy with the schedule, and they're also already up to date with the final content.

Mapping process delivered ICD-0 + ICD10 files to AAT on time this cycle

Did mapping process work well this time??   Yes, process was good

HOWEVER, the counts don't match Donna's manual counts exactly, so we will investigate further:

  • ICD-0 = Manual mapping count = ???? new records, only ???? new records coming through in Delta files
  • ICD-10 = Manual mapping count = ???? new records, 485 new records coming through in Delta files
    • Donna sent report:
    • Compared Delta file changes to report:
      • Delta file showed most differences were due to 47 updated records in the Delta, in addition to that there was only one missing concept:
        • 1196866006
      • Confirmed with Rick that this was a concept that was added to the content (therefore came through to mapping in the drip feed), and was then removed from the content before the monthly release! 
      • Therefore should be missing from the Delta files - just should also be removed from Donna's manual counts (based on the drip feed) - she will work with Rick to get visibility of the Mapping QA report to remove these concepts from her counts
      • (see email trail at 16:24 on 15/2/2022)

Maria confirmed manual process went well again this month

April 2022:

  • Donna ran new report that Rick created to double check no invalid mappings, all clean now
  • Mark/Donna to complete mapping on Monday

June 2022:

  • Rick to confirm whether or not the difference in the Deleted record count (in the new automated mapping stats report) is anything to be concerned about ....

July 2022:

  • ICD-0 - very few changes expected
  • ICD-10 - expecting 1000+ changes due to large number of intentional inactivations this cycle
5Brief run through of the known issues already identified by the content team during the QA batch process, to ensure that technical team are aware of them, and can either resolve them in time for the release, or confirm as known issues.

6DevOps resource confirmedChris will be the resource for the July release... (though Joe will cover last few days of cycle whilst Chris is on leave)
7Versioning and Change Freeze

Plan is to follow the new processes as now defined:

AAT walked through and agreed new process with DevOps already, so unless there are any further questions/issues??

AAT to sign off PreProduction (unversioned) build before 12:00 on 19th July, and then:

  • Versioning + related issues to be completed and resolved as of 5pm on  - DONE!
8Stats Report

Reports run via the reporting platform:

  1. Timing of the Release validation on 21st in order to allow enough time after sign off to complete re-opening tasks for the AP before 5pm on 21st April as planned - meeting moved to 9:30am on 21st to give us as much time as possible...
  2. Intermittent problems with the 12am Daily Build have been caught by backup 2am Daily Build run so far, BUT could in theory run into problems with the mapping drip feed that also runs at 2am.  However, this should be mopped up by the Saturday drip feed, so shouldn't be a problem - agreed auto-job setup for 3am on Monday morning to catch any stragglers as well...
  3. .
  4. ************************************************************************************************************************
    1. If we find issues during pre-versioning validation this has a knock on effect on the timing of DevOps' versioning
    2. The main concern here is the visibility for the Content Team if we can't get them back up within the same day as planned
    3. Therefore, if we get to 15:00 on the day of versioning and still cannot sign off the PreProd content, we need to let Maria know so that she can give the team plenty of notice that they won't be back in the tool until tomorrow at the earliest.
  6. ************************************************************************************************************************
  7. RICK found another new issue with the Run and Reload job in Rundeck when testing the maps yesterday.  Rick has now added the "Published" flag into the query for picking up the previously published package which should resolve this issue...
