A well-configured interface ensures that messages and documents are sent reliably and quickly to the correct destination.
Configuring an interface affects how the messages and documents to the interface will be received or sent, the trigger periods for
inactivity, who gets notified for interface events, the interface name and the type of connection to other interfaces.
Configuring the new interface involves several generic sections that apply to any interface type. Most sections need not
be filled out completely, or at all, for basic usage of the interface. Generic settings include:
- General Interface Settings includes parameters like interface name and the active status of the
interface. The fields differ slightly for inbound and outbound interfaces.
- Validation includes interface monitoring, notification, restart, and message logging options
- Monitoring includes interface monitoring, notification, restart, and message logging options
- Logging includes interface monitoring, notification, restart, and message logging options
- Scripting configures scripts to run when defined interface events occur, such
as starting and stopping the interface, or sending and receiving messages
- Encryption allows interface encryption settings to be specified.
This will only be visible for the transport types which support encryption (TCP/IP, e-mail and HTTP).
Specific Configuration that depends on the content type of the interface:
Multiple "transport" protocols are supported by HL7Connect to cater for different approaches to exchanging data.
The links below give more detailed information about each transport protocol:
