Prepare your system to test at the Connectathon. Find configuration, IP address, OIDs and other network information here.
- Configuration for Connectathon test systems / OIDs
- Training on gazelle configuration entry
- Connectathon Network Description
- IP Addresses
An important Connectathon preparation task for December is to share configuration parameters for your test system (ports, URLs...).
Configuration entry is a two-step process prior to the Connectathon. We want you to spend your time at the Connectathon working on interoperability issues and not asking your neighbor, "What is the URL of your Repository?"
- Starting in December, we collect your system's configuration parameters in gazelle. Due Jan 9.
- Then, you retrieve your partners' parameters from gazelle and enter them into your system. Finish this task before arriving at the Connectathon.
Gazelle assigns you default parameters based on the profiles & actors you signed up to test. Your task is to update those to actual parameter for your test system and marked them 'Approved'. This is done in gazelle under menu Configuration-->System Configuration.
Hostnames: Each test system in gazelle is given a hostname. You can allocate additional hostnames for your systems if you need them. IP addresses will be assigned to hostnames shortly before the Connectathon.
The gazelle proxy: The config/ports for the gazelle proxy are shown on the gazelle configuration page in red font. There is separate training provided about use of the gazelle proxy.
Many systems need OIDs as part of their configuration (Patient ID Sources, XDS Source & Repositories, homeCommunityIDs, others...). These are assigned in gazelle under menu Configuration-->OIDs for current session.
Any questions about configuration parameters should be sent to Lynn Felhofer (...after you have viewed the training ;-) )
This is the same process as 2013 and 2014 connectathons, with minor enhancements to the gazelle user interface:
- Gazelle user manual: System Configuration topic
- Configuration 101 (.mp4 10 min): entering DICOM and HL7 configuration parameters for your system
- Configuration 102 (.mp4 11 min): special instructions for entering webservices parameters & finding your OIDs
- Configuration 103 (.mp4 7 min): finding and exporting your test partners' configurations
The connectathon network is the backbone for our interoperability testing. Please read this before arriving in Cleveland: <available here in December>
- In January, fixed IP addresses will be assigned for all hostnames you configured as part of your configuration work in Dec/Jan (hosts, ports, URLs, ...).
- You can see your IP addresses using Gazelle:
-- Configurations -> (Company) : Systems Configuration
-- Select a system
-- The hosts and IP addresses associated with that system will display at the top
- You can see all IP addresses (all systems, including yours, using Gazelle:
-- Configurations -> Network Configuration Overview
-- Lower left: Download hosts file
