Issues with Medication and MedicationV1 data types on PPE RRS feed

  • Question

  • I added a new Medication item to my HealthVault PPE account. I expected this to be of type Medication (30cafccc-047d-4288-94ef-643571f7919d), but when I look at the available items via the "Thing Type Reference" (http://developer.healthvault.com/types/types.aspx), it displays a "Server Error in '/' Application." page. When I open the items for the other Medication type (5c5f1223-f63c-4464-870c-3e36ba471def), I do see the Medication item that I just added...

    Could anyone explain to me, whether the 30cafccc-... medication type is already supported in the PPE, and if so, how I can manually add medication items of that type?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Jeroen,

    All medication types are supported in PPE.  But there seem to be a problem with the "View Things" link for the new medication type on  the http://developer.healthvault.com/types/types.aspx page.   I get the same error you get.

    You may want to check out the versioning feature explained in the link below to understand how various medication types fit together.


    Also, you can also check if the added medication types appears using developer tool X-ray
