A password manager is an important security tool that allows users to store and manage their passwords without the need to remember or write them down in insecure places. In this article, we will explore the development of a simple password manager using the Flask framework and the InterSystems IRIS database.

Key Features

Our password manager application will provide the following key features:

Our objective

In the last article, we talked about a few starters for Django. We learned how to begin the project, ensure we have all the requisites, and make a CRUD. However, today we are going a little further.
Sometimes we need to access more complex methods, so today, we will connect IRIS to a Python environment, build a few functions and display them on a webpage. It will be similar to the last discussion, but further enough for you to make something new, even though not enough to feel lost.

Prediction of server configuration for entry

The platform server entry configuration prediction application connects to Iris in Java and uses its Integrated ML technology to analyze data such as hospital outpatient volume, number of services, number of messages, and message save time. It can predict the server configuration required for the hospital entry platform before the hospital integration platform enters, providing convenience for customers.

IRIS Api Tester

Hello Community!!

I just upload my lastest application "IRIS Api Tester" to the Open Exchange.

It's a docker project with InterSystems IRIS + Newman that will allow you to test your Postman Collections in a quick and easy way..

It's ready to work out of the box, you just have to clone the repo:

Run the docker-compose file:

Make sure you have git installed.

I created a git folder inside the IRIS mgr directory. I right clicked the git folder and chose Git Bash Here from the context menu.

git clone

Clone my csp-log-tutorial GitHub repo if you like to try it out for yourself.

ZPM Simple Implementation Cookbook

ZPM is designed to work with applications and modules for InterSystems IRIS Data Platform. It consists of two components, the ZPN Client which is a CLI to manage modules, and The Registry which is a database of modules and meta-information. We can use ZPM to search, install, upgrade, remove and publish modules. With ZPM you can install ObjectScript classes, Frontend applications, Interoperability productions, IRIS BI solutions, IRIS Datasets or any files such as Embedded Python wheels.

Today this cookbook will go through 3 sections:

InterSystems FAQ rubric

For volatile tables (tables with many INSERTs and DELETEs), storage for bitmap indexes can become inefficient over time.

For example, suppose that there are thousands of data with the following definition, and the operation of bulk deletion with TRUNCATE TABLE after being retained for a certain period of time is repeatedly performed.

IoT with InterSystems IRIS

IoT (Internet of Things) is a network of interconnected things, including vehicles, machines, buildings, domestic devices or any other thing with embedded TCP/IP remote connection available, allowing it to receive and send execution instructions and data. Each thing provides one or more services to the IoT network. For instance, smart light bulbs provide services of turning off and turning on the lights; smart air conditioners maintain the environment temperature; smart cameras send notifications when capturing movement.

Open AI integration with IRIS

As you all know, the world of artificial intelligence is already here, and everyone wants to use it to their benefit.

There are many platforms that offer artificial intelligence services for free, by subscription or private ones. However, the one that stands out because of the amount of "noise" it made in the world of computing is Open AI, mainy thanks to its most renowned services: ChatGPT and DALL-E.

Countermeasures against SQL injection have been published on various websites, but we believe that it is possible to prevent SQL injection in applications using InterSystems SQL as well as other RDBMS by implementing these countermeasures appropriately. In addition, InterSystems Data Platform (hereinafter referred to as IRIS) incorporates several measures that make SQL injection more difficult than general RDBMS.

Excuse if this is obvious to Python programmers but for those crossing over from ObjectScript this may be a useful tip.

The scenario is developing some Embedded python commands.

Testing out functionality is being confirmed via the shell:

Python 3.9.5 (default, Mar 14 2023, 06:58:44) [MSC v.1927 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32
Type quit() or Ctrl-D to exit this shell.

When Python evaluates an expression in the shell, it prints the result of the expression to the terminal.

Say I've been developing a web application that uses IRIS as the back end. I've been working on it with unauthenticated access. It's getting to the point where I would like to deploy it to users, but first I need to add authentication. Rather than using the default IRIS password authentication, I'd like users to sign in with my organization's Single Sign On, or some other popular identity provider like Google or GitHub. I've read that OpenID Connect is a common authentication standard, and it's supported by IRIS. What is the simplest way to get up and running?

One of the most common needs of our clients is the creation of REST services that allow access to the information present in IRIS / HealthConnect. The advantage of these REST services is that it allows the development of custom user interfaces with the most current technologies taking advantage of the reliability and performance of IRIS in the back-end.

Interview Questions

There is documentation. A recruitment consultant wants to quickly challenge candidates with some relevant technical questions to a role.

Can they automate making a list of questions and answers from the available documentation?

Interview Answers and Learning

One of the most effective ways to cement new facts into accessible long term memory is with phased recall.

LangChain Ghost in the PDF

Posing a question to consider during the current Grand Prix competition.

I wanted to share an observation about using PDFs with LangChain.

When loading the text out of a PDF, I noticed there was an artifact of gaps within some of the words extracted.

For example (highlighted in red)

If you ever wondered how to debug some requests that are being made to or from IRIS, well here is a little tutorial on how to do that.

During a complex project, usually you get the specifications and implement the communication between IRIS and other things based on that. But from the paper to the real world there's usually a huge gap and you need to know why you are receiving an error on a parameter, on a header, you are not receiving the data and so on.

API to import/export routines

This is an article on the InterSystems FAQ site.

1. Export API

a. Use $system.OBJ.Export() to specify individual routines to export. For example:

do $system.OBJ.Export("TEST1.mac,TEST2.mac","c:\temp\routines.xml",,.errors)

The format to specify is routine name.extension, and the extension is mac, bas, int, inc, obj.

Errors during export are stored in errors.

Who has never been through in the following situation:

I have an application/global configuration that is not and cannot be mapped to a class, but it is necessary to provide a stored procedure so that a report tool using ODBC/JDBC or even using the resultset of IRIS itself, can access the data and generate the report.

In IRIS we have a functionality that allows us to create a query that can be accessed internally and also be exposed as a stored procedure, with our own logic. That functionality is Custom Class Query.

Hi Community!

Just want to share with you an exercise I made to create "my own" chat with GPT in Telegram.

It became possible because of two components on Open Exchange: Telegram Adapter by @Nikolay Soloviev and IRIS Open-AI by @Kurro Lopez

So with this example you can setup your own chat with ChatGPT in Telegram.

Let's see how to make it work!

Since SELECT ... FOR UPDATE is implemented in many RDBMS as a method of explicit row lock acquisition, I think there are many cases where this function is used.

This syntax is not an error for InterSystems products, but it does not acquire row locks as expected.

This article will show you how to achieve equivalent functionality.

Using the Config.Configuration class and SYS.Database class methods, you can create and register a namespace database from the terminal.

Below is a series of execution examples that create database file /CacheDB/AAA/cache.dat and register database AAA and namespace AAA in the configuration file (cache.cpf).
* Execute in the %SYS namespace. *

* Make sure that this script runs as the user that is used for all IRIS processes to ensure that the directory has appropriate ownership and permissions *

Recently I needed to restore a version of a production class, which was overwritten by compilation and running UpdateProduction. As the correct version was unavailable in the source control, I used journals to restore the data. Journals store a plethora of information about what's happening in the system and are quite a powerful tool. This article explains how to work with journals to extract the data you require.
