FHIR🔥 API Extensions

Package load operation

One way to load the (Ontoserver-compatible) contents of a FHIR Package (see https://registry.fhir.org/learn) is to include the package in a Syndication feed.

An alternative is to use the $x-load-package operation. This is defined on the Ontoserver base URL and is invoked using POST with the FHIR Package as the payload and a MIME type of application/tar+tgz.

Where possible, Ontoserver will attempt to avoid creating duplicate resources by looking at the associated resource url and version elements as well as the id element.
