Epic Connector

Epic is a healthcare-related service which handles patient medical records. The Epic connector lets you manage and synchronize accounts between Epic and the IDM managed user objects. An Epic administrator account on the Epic system you wish to connect to is required for this connector to work.

Before you start

Before you configure the connector, log in to your Epic administrator account and note the following:

  • Client ID

  • Username

  • Password

  • Private key (Generate an RSA keypair and convert to PKCS8)

    Note

    To generate your private key:

    1. Generate and download an RSA key pair.

    2. Run the following command to convert the RSA private key to PKCS8 format:

      openssl pkcs8 -topk8 -nocrypt -in privatekey.pem -out epic_pkcs8_private_key.pem
    3. After generating the private key in PKCS8 format, remove -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY----- and -----END PRIVATE KEY----- from the generated PKCS8 private key file.

    4. Remove any escape characters such as \n or \r.

  • REST Endpoint (optional)

  • SOAP Endpoint (optional)

  • Max Records (optional)

  • User template file path (Optional)

  • User sub template file path (Optional)

  • In Basket classification file path (Optional)

  • Group file path (Optional)

Note

The user template, user sub template, in basket, and group file paths are local paths that are accessible to the IDM or RCS instance.

Install the Epic connector

Download the connector .jar file from the ForgeRock BackStage download site.

  • If you are running the connector locally, place it in the /path/to/openidm/connectors directory, for example:

    mv ~/Downloads/epic-connector-1.5.20.9.jar /path/to/openidm/connectors/
  • If you are using a remote connector server (RCS), place it in the /path/to/openicf/connectors directory on the RCS.

Configure the Epic connector

Create a connector configuration using the Admin UI:

  1. Select Configure > Connectors and click New Connector.

  2. Enter a Connector Name.

  3. Select Epic Connector - 1.5.20.9 as the Connector Type.

  4. Provide the Base Connector Details.

  5. Click Save.

When your connector is configured correctly, the connector displays as Active in the admin UI.

Alternatively, test that the configuration is correct by running the following command:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--request POST \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/Epic?_action=test"
{
  "name": "Epic",
  "enabled": true,
  "config": "config/provisioner.openicf/Epic",
  "connectorRef": {
    "bundleVersion": "[1.5.0.0,1.6.0.0)",
    "bundleName": "org.forgerock.openicf.connectors.epic-connector",
    "connectorName": "org.forgerock.openicf.connectors.epic.EpicConnector"
  },
  "displayName": "Epic Connector",
  "objectTypes": [
    "__ACCOUNT__",
    "__ALL__"
  ],
  "ok": true
}

If the command returns "ok": true, your connector has been configured correctly, and can authenticate to the Epic server.

Configure connection pooling

The Epic connector supports connection pooling, which can substantially improve the performance of the connector. The basic connection pooling configuration is described in Connection Pooling Configuration.

You can use the Epic connector to perform the following actions on an Epic account:

The following example creates a user with the minimum required attributes:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--request POST \
--data '{
  "UserID": "8675309",
  "__NAME__": "Walter, Taylor"
}'\
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/Epic/__ACCOUNT__?_action=create"
{
  "_id": "8675309",
  "UserComplexName": {
    "FirstName": "Taylor",
    "GivenNameInitials": "",
    "MiddleName": "",
    "LastName": "Walter",
    "LastNamePrefix": "",
    "SpouseLastName": "",
    "SpousePrefix": "",
    "Suffix": "",
    "AcademicTitle": "",

  "UserID": "8675309",
  "__NAME__": "WALTER, TAYLOR",
  "UsersManagers": [],
  "InBasketClassifications": [],
  "__ENABLE__": true
}

Note

  • When you create a new user, you must specify at least UserID and __NAME__.

  • The maximum length of __NAME__ is 100 characters. The format for userName is LAST, FIRST MI format.

  • The maximum number of characters for UserID is 15.

The following example queries all Epic users:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \

The following example deactivates a user with the minimum required attributes:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--header "if-Match:*" \
--request PUT \
--data '{ \
  "__NAME__": "TAYLOR, WALTER",
  "__ENABLE__": false
}' \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/Epic/__ACCOUNT__/8675309"
{
  "_id": "8675309",
  "UserComplexName": {
    "FirstName": "Taylor",

  "__GROUP__": [],
  "UserID": "8675309",
  "__NAME__": "WALTER, TAYLOR",
  "UsersManagers": [],
  "InBasketClassifications": [],
  "__ENABLE__": false
}

You can use the Epic connector to delete an account from the Epic repository.

Note

A deleted account technically remains in the Epic repository, but cannot be queried by its ID.

The following example deletes an Epic account:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--request DELETE \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/Epic/__ACCOUNT__/8675309"
{
  "_id": "8675309",
  "UserComplexName": {
    "FirstName": "Taylor",
    "GivenNameInitials": "",
    "MiddleName": "",
    "LastName": "Walter",
    "LastNamePrefix": "",
    "SpouseLastName": "",
    "SpousePrefix": "",
    "Suffix": "",
    "AcademicTitle": "",
    "PrimaryTitle": "",
    "SpouseLastNameFirst": false,
    "FatherName": "",
    "GrandfatherName": ""
  },
  "BlockStatus": {
    "IsBlocked": false,
    "Reason": "",
    "Comment": ""
  },
  "__GROUP__": [],
  "UserID": "8675309",
  "__NAME__": "WALTER, TAYLOR",
  "UsersManagers": [],
  "InBasketClassifications": [],
  "__ENABLE__": false
}

You can then confirm the account has been deleted by querying the UserID:

curl \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Username: openidm-admin" \
--header "X-OpenIDM-Password: openidm-admin" \
--header "Accept-API-Version: resource=1.0" \
--header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--request GET \
"http://localhost:8080/openidm/system/Epic/__ACCOUNT__/8675309"
{
  "code": 404,
  "reason": "Not Found",
  "message": "Object 8675309 not found on system/Epic/__ACCOUNT__"
}

OpenICF Interfaces Implemented by the Epic Connector

The Epic Connector implements the following OpenICF interfaces.

Create

Creates an object and its uid.

Delete

Deletes an object, referenced by its uid.

Schema

Describes the object types, operations, and options that the connector supports.

Script on Connector

Enables an application to run a script in the context of the connector. Any script that runs on the connector has the following characteristics:

  • The script runs in the same execution environment as the connector and has access to all the classes to which the connector has access.

  • The script has access to a connector variable that is equivalent to an initialized instance of the connector. At a minimum, the script can access the connector configuration.

  • The script has access to any script-arguments passed in by the application.

Search

Searches the target resource for all objects that match the specified object class and filter.

Test

Tests the connector configuration. Testing a configuration checks all elements of the environment that are referred to by the configuration are available. For example, the connector might make a physical connection to a host that is specified in the configuration to verify that it exists and that the credentials that are specified in the configuration are valid.

This operation might need to connect to a resource, and, as such, might take some time. Do not invoke this operation too often, such as before every provisioning operation. The test operation is not intended to check that the connector is alive (that is, that its physical connection to the resource has not timed out).

You can invoke the test operation before a connector configuration has been validated.

Update

Updates (modifies or replaces) objects on a target resource.
