Export the instrument-event mappings for a project (i.e., how the data collection instruments are designated for certain events in a longitudinal project). (Copied from "Export Instrument-Event Mappings" method of REDCap API documentation, v.10.5.1)

redcap_event_instruments(
  redcap_uri,
  token,
  arms = c("1"),
  verbose = TRUE,
  config_options = NULL,
  handle_httr = NULL
)

Arguments

redcap_uri

The uri/url of the REDCap server typically formatted as "https://server.org/apps/redcap/api/". Required.

token

The user-specific string that serves as the password for a project. Required.

arms

A character string of arms to retrieve. (Default: '1')

verbose

A boolean value indicating if messages should be printed to the R console during the operation. The verbose output might contain sensitive information (e.g. PHI), so turn this off if the output might be visible somewhere public. Optional.

config_options

A list of options passed to httr::POST(). See details at httr::httr_options(). Optional.

handle_httr

The value passed to the handle parameter of httr::POST(). This is useful for only unconventional authentication approaches. It should be NULL for most institutions. Optional.

Value

Currently, a list is returned with the following elements,

  • data: A tibble::tibble() where each row represents one column in the REDCap dataset.

  • success: A boolean value indicating if the operation was apparently successful.

  • status_code: The http status code of the operation.

  • outcome_message: A human readable string indicating the operation's outcome.

  • elapsed_seconds: The duration of the function.

  • raw_text: If an operation is NOT successful, the text returned by REDCap. If an operation is successful, the raw_text is returned as an empty string to save RAM.
