Assuming you have the service pointed in the right direction, there may be something wrong in either the configuration of the router or the rule itself.

The relevant configuration details from the "General" tab of the rule:

And a basic example of how you'd create a rule based on field criteria:

Hi Doug,

If you're creating a Busness Process to route/translate RecordMap messages, you'll want to use EnsLib.MsgRouter.RoutingEngine as the BP class. It doesn't expect a document type, unlike the VDoc class.

EDIT: I should have also mentioned that there's no need to select a document type for the RecordMap in the DTL editor, since they don't have one laugh

Hey Doug,

It's been a very long time :)

So ... no, you don't need a complex record map to do this, but the mechanism takes just a little more work using a "simple" record map. The record map feature doesn't let you set a Composite field as repeating, which is why we need to deal with those "grouped" OBX segments/fields using a different method.

What I've done is define the RecordMap with individual fields for everything before the first OBX field, and then define the rest of the record as a single, repeating field. You can then iterate over that last field and parse out the individual HL7 field values with $PIECE, or turn them into a $LIST and  reference the elements by numeric index. The only delimiters you'll need to set for the record map are a "|" as the field delimiter and a "~" for the repetition delimiter.

Here's a sample record map layout:

Along with setting OBXSegs as repeating, I set the MAXLEN DataType parameter to something large enough to accommodate all of the fields. Also note the Discard field; the sample data in your post included a leading "|," so that needs to be treated as though there's an initial empty field in each record. Including a dummy field to consume it makes things a bit more understandable when addressing the subsequent fields.

Here's one way you might iterate over the repeating record map field:

As you surmised in a follow-up to Nora's earlier posts, the Complex Record Map functionality is really only required when the record structure varies from line to line in the input data.
