Released features

FeatureTypeJira keySummary
Update Dataset Dictionaries to allow setting of a Table NameEnhancementFAIR-6551

This adds the ability to store a Table Name against each individual dictionary. By default when Data is uploaded to FAIR this should be set to the Dictionary’s Code, however if any conflicts are detected within the dataset an alternative table name will be generated.

FAIR UI Lookup validation should allow duplicate namesEnhancementFAIR-7725

Previously there was a mismatch in lookup validation between the FAIR UI and API. This change brings the UI in-line with the API, and permits users to allow the creation and editing of duplicate lookups within a dataset.
