This restful-atna-simulator (RAS) project is a simulator for RestfulATNA transaction.
The objective is to simulate Audit Record Repository for ITI-20 transaction through RESTful transactions based on FHIR standard using HAPI FHIR server:

ITI-20 Transaction

How the application works

The project shall do this following action :

  • An Audit Resource Request is sent to the RAS. –> The RAS shall return an Audit Resource Response with a HTTP 2xx code.

  • An Audit Bundle Request is sent to the RAS. –> The RAS shall return an Audit Bundle Response with a HTTP 2xx code. The Audit Bundle Request shall respect these constraints : Audit Bundle Request constraints

If no resource, an empty one, another FHIR resource or a non-existant FHIR Resource is provided, the RAS shall return a HTTP 400, 422 or 500 error.
NB: For Audit Bundle Request cases, when a entry[0].resource is declared a resourceType SHALL BE present, if not a error “theResource is empty” with a stack java errors appears.

How to use the application

  1. Once the application is deployed, the endpoint is constructed like below :

    POST endpoint/type?_format=mime-type HTTP/1.1

  • endpoint: where the application is deployed
  • type: The type of the resource you want to send Bundle or AuditEvent
  • mime-type: The format of your response sent by the application json or xml
  1. The Content-Type is declared as below :
    • Content-Type: application/fhir+xml or application/fhir+json
      (if the request is sent respectively in xml or json format)

For example if the application is deployed on example.com, and a AuditEvent is sent in JSON and the response must be returned in XML, the endpoint and content-type should be :

  • Endpoint: https://example.com/restful-atna-simulator/AuditEvent?_format=xml
  • Content-Type: application/fhir+json

The RAS ONLY accept POST request and Bundle or AuditEvent FHIR resources.
