Changing the Description of a Concept Code

[Exposed under VS in application]

The description of a concept code may be added, modified or removed using the updateCodeDescription element.

Element updateCodeDescription

As with all updates, updateCodeDescription can have its own ballotStatus if needed to reflect special cases. It has an optional oldDescription element that can contain the description that is being changed and a newDescription element that contains the revised description or can be empty if the description is to be completely removed. If present, the oldDescription will be validated against the database before the change is performed.

Attributes of updateCodeDescription
conceptCode The concept code that the change is being applied to
conceptName A valid designation for the concept code. Optional, but will be validated if supplied.
Example XML for updateCodeDescription

The example above removes the second sentence from the “Light Ale” description. Note that the preferred name is “Light Ale” rather than “LIGHT ALE” because of an update that occurred earlier in both this document and the actual XML update source.

Updating Property on a Concept Code

Once a property has been added to a coded concept, that property may be updated using the updatePropertyOnCode' element.

Element updatePropertyOnCode

As with other property setting elements, the value to which the property should be updated is documented as the content of a child property element.

Attributes of updatePropertyOnCode
conceptCode The concept code to which the property is attached
propertyId The identifier (name) of the property to be updated.

Removing Properties from a Concept Code

A property that has been added to a coded concept may be removed using the removePropertyFromCode element.

Element removePropertyFromCode
Attributes of removePropertyFromCode
conceptCode The concept code to which the property is attached
propertyId The identifier (name) of the property to be removed.
