Library API


Section

Column

The CDISC LIbrary API provides users (programmers, EDC developers, et al.) with access to the library metadata repository contents to faciliate facilitate use of standard metadata within software applications.

There are generic API query templates for requesting ADaMIG 1v1.2 metadata:

Code Block
linenumberstrue
/mdr/adam/adamig-1-2/datastructures
/mdr/adam/adamig-1-2/datastructures/{datastructure}
/mdr/adam/adamig-1-2/datastructures/{datastructure}/varsets
/mdr/adam/adamig-1-2/datastructures/{datastructure}/varsets/{varset}
/mdr/adam/adamig-1-2/datastructures/{datastructure}/variables/
/mdr/adam/adamig-1-2/datastructures/{datastructure}/variables/{var}

The API can return the metadata content as either Json JSON or XML. A CDISC LIbrary Library account is required.

titleHow is controlled terminology represented in the CDISC LIbrary?

In the IG document, the Codelist/Controlled Terms column in the metadata tables lists either the name of a CDISC Controlled Terminology in parentheses (e.g. (DTYPE) or a list of acceptable code values (e.g. Y, N).

For Variables that use a CDISC Controlled Terminology codelist, the variable metadata returned by the API includes a link to the controlled terminology definition in the library. In the Data Standards BrrowserBrowser, the C-code for the published codelist will appear in the Code column.

For variables where the metadata table shows a list of allowable values, the variable metadata returned by the API includes the list of allowable values. In the Data Standards Browser, the Code column will be empty. See Limitations (Staging) foobar.

In the Excel workbook export, the Codelist/Controlled Terms column displays either the name of the Controlled Terminology or the allowable values.
