37.32FHIR Endpoint Security

 

The FHIR Endpoint Security configuration category includes the following configurable options:

  • Allow Searches With Compartment Access

  • Automatically Narrow Search Scope

  • Reject Insufficient Permissions with HTTP 401

37.32.1Property: Allow Searches With Compartment Access

 
Property Name Allow Searches With Compartment Access
Property Key
Property Type BOOLEAN
Description When disabled, the server will proactively reject searches on resource types, even though a resource in the compartment could possibly be in the results. When enabled, the searches will be accepted, but the server will filter the results to only include resources that are in the compartment. Enabling this flag is less secure, as the interceptor may leak the existence of resources that are not in the compartment.
Applies to Modules
  • FHIR Gateway REST Endpoint
  • FHIR REST Endpoint (DSTU2)
  • FHIR REST Endpoint (R3)
  • FHIR REST Endpoint (R4)
  • Hybrid Providers REST Endpoint
Default Value false
Example Property
module.[MODULE_ID].config.fhir_endpoint_security.allow_compartment_searches = false

37.32.2Property: Automatically Narrow Search Scope

 
Property Name Automatically Narrow Search Scope
Property Key
Property Type BOOLEAN
Description When enabled, the server will automatically try to narrow the scope of searches when the user only has permission to access specific instances or compartments. For example, when a user only has the FHIR_READ_ALL_IN_COMPARTMENT/Patient/123 permission and tries to perform a search for Observation?code=foo, this search will be performed automatically as Observation?subject=Patient/123&code=foo.
Applies to Modules
  • FHIR Gateway REST Endpoint
  • FHIR REST Endpoint (DSTU2)
  • FHIR REST Endpoint (R3)
  • FHIR REST Endpoint (R4)
  • Hybrid Providers REST Endpoint
Default Value false
Example Property
module.[MODULE_ID].config.fhir_endpoint_security.automatically_narrow_search_scope = false

37.32.3Property: Reject Insufficient Permissions with HTTP 401

 
Property Name Reject Insufficient Permissions with HTTP 401
Property Key
Property Type BOOLEAN
Description If enabled, an HTTP 401 will be used instead of an HTTP 403 response for unauthorized operations. See Rejecting Unauthorized FHIR Calls for more information.
Applies to Modules
  • FHIR Gateway REST Endpoint
  • FHIR REST Endpoint (DSTU2)
  • FHIR REST Endpoint (R3)
  • FHIR REST Endpoint (R4)
  • Hybrid Providers REST Endpoint
Default Value false
Example Property
module.[MODULE_ID].config.fhir_endpoint_security.reject_insufficient_permissions_with_401 = false
