Dropdown Manager

Based on feedback, below enhancements are implemented in 'Dropdown Manager'. 


  1. Delete participant - When participants are deleted from REDCap, corresponding participants and its associated data (visits, specimens, forms) are deleted from OpenSpecimen. 
  2. Merge participant - Participant merge is handled in a better way now using the identifiers MRN, eMPI or SSN. Refer to 'Participant mapping, matching, and merging/wiki/spaces/DEV/pages/412713060' for more details.
  3. Lock fields update - In OpenSpecimen, it is possible to lock the fields that are being fetched from REDCap. Once these fields are locked using JSON, the users are not allowed to edit these fields in OpenSpecimen. If these fields are updated in REDCap, the changes are synced in OpenSpecimen.


Admins can now exclude part of the instrument from syncing with OpenSpecimen. For more details, refer to the section participant mapping in 'Participant mapping, matching, and merging/wiki/spaces/DEV/pages/412713060'
