Apache cTAKES 18.104.22.168 is a Patch Release for Apache cTAKES 4.0
There is only one item that is updated which is related to Authentication for use of the Apache cTAKES UMLS dictionary.
Starting 2021, NIH is using a new method for UMLS license authentication.
To use the UMLS dictionary, you must obtain a UMLS API Key.
After obtaining a Key, there are several methods to utilize it with Apache cTAKES.
You may specify the value of your Key with a single parameter:
ctakes.umls_apikeyin your Operating System
umlsKeyin your Operating System
umlsKeyin your Piper File
umlsKeyin your Dictionary Properties XML File
--keyin your Clinical Pipeline Script command line
--keyin your Piper Runner command line
-Dctakes.umls_apikeyin your Java command parameters
-DumlsKeyin your Java command parameters
bin\runClinicalPipeline -i C:\Input\MyNotes\ --xmiOut C:\Output\MyNotes\ --key 00a111b3-4c55-5555-5d66-66e7f888ghij
00a111b3-4c55-5555-5d66-66e7f888ghij is my Key.
The single key settings above will be preferred over the pre-2021 [UserName, Password] methods.
The pre-2021 [UserName, Password] methods may still be used if the username is set to "
umls_api_key" and the password is set to the value of your Key.
