Structure Definition

Ontoserver supports the management of StructureDefinitions. StructureDefinitions that are profiles of ValueSet, CodeSystem or ConceptMap can be referred to for validation of terminology resources.

Structure Definitions support SCRUD (Search, Create, Read, Update and Delete) operations as per the FHIR Specification rules for REST and StructureDefinitions.

Search for structure definitions is limited to the following parameters:

  • the name, _id, description parameters (these 3 additionally support the :exact, :contains and :missing modifiers)

  • the url parameter, including the :missing, :above and :below modifiers, and

  • the identifier, version, type and _tag parameters, including code, |code, system| and system|code formats, and the :missing modifier
