NA Connectathon 2020 Application and Network Info

  Prepare your system to test at the Connectathon.  Find configuration, IP address, OIDs and other network information here.

Configuration for Connectathon test systems / OIDs

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?"

  1. Starting in December, we collect your system's configuration parameters in gazelle.  Due December 20, 2019.
  2. 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 Philip DePalo (...after you have viewed the training ;-) )

Training on gazelle configuration entry

There is a a new Gazelle in town. The training for this has changed.

Connectathon Network Description

The connectathon network is the backbone for our interoperability testing.  Please read this before arriving in Cleveland:  NetworkDescription-NA2020.pdf

 IP Addresses

  1. Fixed IP addresses have been assigned for all hostnames you configured as part of your configuration work in Dec/Jan (hosts, ports, URLs, ...).
  2. You can see your IP addresses using Gazelle (http://gazelle.iheusa.org
    -- Configurations -> (Company) : Systems Configuration
    -- Select a system
    -- The hosts and IP addresses associated with that system will display at the top
  3. You can see all IP addresses (all systems, including yours, using Gazelle (http://gazelle.iheusa.org)
    -- Configurations -> Network Configuration Overview
    -- Lower left: Download hosts file
