All biosource items should have an external id (release id)
Currently, among the
Biosource item types it is only
Patient items that are registered with an external ID. The other types
Retract are created without an external id. But note that
Retract items are actually old
Patient items that have been altered and they have a
Qnnn external id which indicate a patient. It is not until the final step (the deletion step) that creates a new
RetroNo item without an external id.
All biosource item types must have a "Release id".
Not asked items are created by the consent registration wizard and it should be possible to generate that there.
RetroNo items are "created" in the first retraction wizard. The old
Qnnn value should be overwritten with a new release id.
The following prefixes should be used:
- Retract: R
- Not asked: Z
- No and RetroNo: N
Note! Existing items should be manually updated with, for example a batch import.
