How to run cpt4.jar on Athena download: using new UMLS login

(Don O'Hara) #1

Hi all - I’ve migrated my UMLS account to use an identity provider and am not sure how to run the jar file to update CPT descriptions. Is there a new procedure to follow?

After unpacking, simply open a command line in the directory you unpacked all the files into and run “java -Dumls-user=xxx -Dumls-password=xxx -jar cpt4.jar 5”. Please replace “xxx” with UMLS username and password.


Q: I usually sign in with a UTS username and password. What happened to that?
A: We are no longer supporting username/password to sign in. Instead, you will sign in with your email address using one of the identity providers above.

Thanks, @Konstantin_Yaroshove !
I’ll wait for the update to come out. I’m OK for now without the CPT descriptions.

Perhaps you can put a blurb on the Athena download page to let others know not to migrate on UMLS yet?

Has update been completed? Is there documentation on how to use API keys with CPT4 tool?

Yes, the tool was updated. You will get new version and documentation requesting new download in Athena.
