LIBRS Validation and Processing Documentation


Json is coming

Our JSON Validator is now in Beta, and available to all vendors to use!

Please refer to https://docs.librs.org/models and https://json.librs.org:5000/swagger/index.html for information about how to use them. At this stage in the project, the information that should be supplied with each Data Element should be the same as it is on the Flat File (EG: Drug Measurement Type Dosage Unit should be sent as “DU”). In the future, however, we’ll implement a dictionary that will allow for whole word submissions to make things easier to read for everyone (EG: “Dosage Unit” instead of “DU”).

Note: It’s been brought to our attention that Swagger will remove the New Line characters from the request, which will cause the FFToJson and ValidateFFToJson requests to fail. The recommended workaround is to use Postman.

Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or problems using the API. While it’s been tested thoroughly internally we would hate to cause anyone undue frustration, so please reach out as needed.

So to sum all that up, we got confused and as a result wrote a confusing Error Message, which then went on lead to more confusion down the line. We (I) want to apologize for that, and let you know that we’ve updated it so it only applies to Persons and Robberies, and is in line with the existing requirements for Error 15059.

Processing Updates:

These bugs in the processing of the LIBRS Flat Files did not cause any LIBRS Validation issues, but rather created errors when performing the NIBRS Submission of the incidents. Only about 80 Incidents in total were affected by these.
