Important bug fixes to Bulk Upload Wizard Summary of Changes Bug Fixes

  • Issue #495 ("Yields with no assigned creator (user_id) are not updatable.")

    Yields that have no assigned creator are now updatable. Moreover, the updater is, in this case, provided the option of being assigned as creator.

  • Issue #459 ("Change bulk upload (via wizard or API) to allow for traits not in the trait_covariate_associations table")

    The implementation of this feature was flawed—in fact it would report that uploads were successful when in fact they were not. This has been fixed.

  • Issue #520 ("Bulk Upload Wizard shouldn't create unnamed entities if there is only one trait per row of the CSV file")

    It is useless to attach a nameless entity to a single trait. This provides no useful information and only clutters up the database. Therefore, the Bulk Upload Wizard will no longer automatically create such entities. ## Steps Needed for Upgrade
