Using the importer, new data (studies, samples, subjects etc.) can be added. It would be nice to use the same procedure to update records (e.g. samples that have been created automatically).

As Tjeerd told me, this is already possible with studies and subjects. The system checks for the study code or subject name to see whether the record already exists in the database. This should be extended to other entities as well.

Another option is to provide the user with a choice:

  • add these records
  • update records in the database and match column [x] from the excel sheet with [y] from the database
