July 28, 2015 – Alert: Ensemble and HealthShare – HL7, X12, ASTM and EDIFACT Segment Sub-Transformations

InterSystems has corrected a defect that causes errors when executing a data transformation of an HL7, X12, ASTM, or EDIFACT message that includes a call to a segment-level sub-transformation.

This alert applies to Ensemble and HealthShare on all platforms. The defect is present only in Ensemble 2015.2 and in HealthShare versions based on Ensemble 2015.2.

Due to the defect, when a segment-level sub-transformation is called, it is probable that a <PARAMETER> error will occur. The error occurs in the CopyValues() method of the relevant segment type (HL7, X12, ASTM, or EDIFACT). If your application employs a routing engine and this error occurs, the corresponding message will not be routed.

The correction for this defect is identified as KDS214. It will be included in all future releases of Ensemble and HealthShare, including the upcoming Ensemble 2015.2.1 maintenance release. If there is an urgent need for the correction, it is also available via Ad Hoc distribution from InterSystems Worldwide Response Center (WRC). If you have any questions regarding this advisory, please contact the Worldwide Response Center.
