Extract Configs from Gazelle

This page explains how to export the configuration information from Gazelle in a format the SUT can use to configure themselves.

There are 2 methods to get the configurations from test partners :

  1. Using parametric URL webservices
  2. Using SOAP webservices

For the moment the only export format is CSV (Comma Separated Values) files generation. 

Export Peers configuration parameters from the GUI

When searching for peers configurations in Gazelle (menu Configurations-> All Configurations) 


In the configurations page, when available, click on the link "URL for downloading configurations as CSV" :


This URL is accessing the parametric service for downloading configurations.

testingSessionId, configurationType and systemKeyword are parameters that can be set by accessing the URL directly :

Europe : http://gazelle.ihe.net/EU-CAT/systemConfigurations.seam

North America : http://ihe.wustl.edu/gazelle-na/systemConfigurations.seam

System keyword is given if you use the GUI.

You can build the url that matches your need and have periodic query to the tool in order to feed your SUT with the most up to date information from the database.

Here are examples on how to use it : 

  • http://gazelle.ihe.net/EU-CAT/systemConfigurations.seam?testingSessionId=25&configurationType=HL7V2InitiatorConfiguration
  • http://gazelle.ihe.net/EU-CAT/systemConfigurations.seam?testingSessionId=25&systemKeyword=ADT_AGFA_ORBIS_8.4

The response is a CSV file like this one : 

"Configuration Type", "Company",  "System" , "Host" , "Actor" , "is secured", "is approved" , "comment" , "aeTitle", "sopClass","transferRole","port" ,"port proxy" ,"port secured"
"DICOM SCU","AGFA","WS_AGFA_0","agfa13","IMG_DOC_CONSUMER","false","false","For optional DICOM Q/R","WS_AGFA_0","QR","SCU","","",""
"DICOM SCU","AKGUN","PACS_AKGUN_2012","akgun10","PPSM","false","false","","PACS_AKGUN_2012","MPPS","SCU","","","" 

Export peers configuration parameter using SOAP webservices

The wsdl of the webservice to access the peers configuration parameter is located there : 

For Europe :


For North America :


The function of the SOAP webservice are richer than the REST as the it allows filtering on the actor concerned by the configuration. If this functionality is need/requested it will be added to the REST service as well. Note that we do not provide a sample client for that service.
