What is a Foundation Production and what does it do?
We are currently on HealthShare Health Connect 15.03 and we are starting the process of moving to HealthShare Health Connect 2019.1.
The 2019.1 Installation Guide is pretty clear that it is essential, but I'm having trouble working out exactly what it does?
Leading on from this is what should I call it?
From the installation guide:
5. For Local Name, enter the name that will identify the Foundation production. This name will become the namespace that contains the class definitions for the production
So the name I give it will be the name of the production and the namespace.
The name in guide is FHIR234 - which makes me wonder if the Foundation Production ONLY for FHIR interfaces? (should I just call it FHIR ?)
Any advice or guidance appreciated.
PS: Our current naming strategy is has a separate namespace for HL7v2 and Document interfaces (no FHIR yet), for historical reasons called PRODUCTION and DOCUMENTS, with our test server replication this naming strategy exactly (so we have a PRODUCTION namespace on both our test and live servers).
The installation guide:
Install and activate a Foundation production, which is critical to the functionality of Health Connect.
Update: Creating additional namespaces in 2019.1 causes foundation productions to be created automatically (with Ens.Activity.Operation.Local operation).
