Long JSON values

I have JSON object which contains file references. I need to replace the file reference with base64 encoded file which is up to 10MB.

I tried the following but it did not work as expected:

0 9
0 92

I am working on JSON and want to be prepared to handle large Objects. I try this code:

ClassMethod MaxLen() As %Status


set longStr=""

for i=1:1:$SYSTEM.SYS.MaxLocalLength() { set longStr = longStr_"x" }

write "Maximum string length = "_$LENGTH(longStr)


set longObject = {"a":(longStr),"b":(longStr)}

set file=##class(%File).%New("/tmp/longObjectFile.txt")

do file.Open("WSN")

do longObject.%ToJSON(file)

do file.Close()


do file.Open("RS")

What is iris-hl7?

An App that converts HL7 messages to JSON objects. About a year ago I started a GitHub repo for collecting stuff related to HL7. Recently my team added an HL7 interface to our Interoperability Production and we were asked to persist HL7 messages. We created a Kafka topic to receive HL7 messages. We use Kafka Bridges to send messages to Kafka topics. Kafka messages are sent to the Kafka Bridge in JSON format.

Hello, I tried to convert HL7 message to JSON in a business process and I got errors. Has anybody converted HL7 to JSON? Are certain characters not allowed in JSON?

I just tried to set a property to quote request.RAWContent and quote. I will try to put example in GitHub and share here later.

My newest app includes a java routine to read data from Excel 95, 97, 2000, XP, and 2003 workbooks and write the data into IRIS globals using Java Native API library.

If you have Git and Docker installed, clone/git pull the repo into any local directory

$ git clone

Open the terminal in this directory and run:

$ docker-compose up -d

Execute java class IRISNative

The idea for iris-user-manager

I want to deploy IRIS apps running in containers in Kubernetes with user accounts configured.

I have a %ZSTART routine which looks for an XML file with Users export data and if the %ZSTART routine finds this file, it imports it. This Users export data can be obtained by running a class method.

I have defined a task which can be scheduled or run on demand. This tasks imports user data from an XM file.

In Kubernetes I can provide a ConfigMap to stage the Users data for the %ZSTART routine.

We have a rule to disable a user account if they have not logged in for a certain number of days. IRIS Audit database logs many events such as login failures for example. It can be configured to log successful logins as well. We have IRIS clusters with many IRIS instances. I like to run queries against audit data from ALL IRIS instances and identify user accounts which have not logged into ANY IRIS instance.

This week I was able to demo a proof of concept for our FMS interface on traffic cop architecture to my team. We are working on modernizing an Interoperability production running on mirrored Health Connect instances. We deploy IRIS workloads on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform using InterSystems Kubernetes Operator (IKO). We can define any number of replicas for the compute stateful set where each compute pod runs our Interoperability production. We introduced Horizontal Pod Autoscaler (HPA) to scale up the number of compute pods based on memory or CPU utilization.

IRIS configurations and user accounts contain various data elements that need to be tracked, and many people struggle to copy or sync those system configurations and user accounts between IRIS instances. So how can this process be simplified?

In software engineering, CI/CD or CICD is the set of combined practices of continuous integration (CI) and (more often) continuous delivery or (less often) continuous deployment (CD). Can CI/CD eliminate all our struggles?

Hello, I want to show a fellow DC member how to convert JSON file into HL7 message. I personally do not work with HL7. I set up a production with EnsLib.File.PassthroughService. It passes Ens.StreamContainer to BPL process. I call a DTL to transform StreamContainer to HL7 message. I run into an error:

ERROR <Ens>ErrBPTerminated: Terminating BP JSON2HL7 # due to error: ERROR #5035: General exception Name 'Parsing error' Code '3' Data ''
> ERROR #5035: General exception Name 'Parsing error' Code '3' Data ''

The code is in this GitHub repo:

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.
