Release Date: July 15, 2016

This maintenance release was focused on fixing a number of high priority bugs. Ten bugs and one improvement were addressed as part of this release.

The most notable fixes include changes that were made to participant lists and their properties to prevent errors and limitations for users trying to edit existing participant list properties.

New Features

There are no new features for the Illume 6 product as part of this maintenance release.


  • Illume’s database has been altered so that it is compatible with Azure SQL allowing Illume databases to be hosted in the Azure cloud.

Resolved Bugs


  • Illume Administrators can now configure participant lists in their systems to use the Relations feature and configure relation options.
  • Users no longer receive an “Object Reference Error” that prevents them from editing and saving any changes to the DATSTAT_CASEOWNER property on a participant list.
  • Importing participant data no longer requires that the DatStat built in properties be capitalized. Importing built in property data is now case insensitive.
  • Participant lists will no longer be corrupted by “ghost” scale values being added to the DATSTAT_TEST variable. The “ghost” scale values are no longer being created each time the property is edited and saved.
  • Partial submissions are not displaying properly in the audit log in the Data Change module when they are synced from RDC.
  • The radio/checkbox control size setting in the survey style tree now properly affects the sizing of both radio options and checkboxes.
  • Extra instructional messaging has been added to the Multi-Control question and Multi-Control question table editors to warn users that the preloads they create for their questions must have a value type that is compatible with the control type being used.
  • Submissions created through the data import feature are now displayed on the General tab of the Data Manager when viewing a survey.


  • Users can again configure nested study tasks in Discovery to close automatically with a specified status code when the parent study task is closed.
  • Users are again able to use the “Create Contact Log Entry with Selected Status Code” feature in Discovery when configuring communication tasks in their workflows.
  • Participant survey study tasks no longer get automatically updated to a final complete status code as soon as the survey is launched

  • Participant address remains in the participant information section of the participant details page even when the “Set participant properties” checkbox is unchecked.
  • When viewing the Scheduled Task Execute Events tab under the Study Task Events section, the message should say “No scheduled task execute events defined” instead of “No scheduled task runtime events defined.”
  • Participant Assign Action on save shows the Study Arm GUID Value instead of the Study Arm Name.
