Create a New Project

In the Projects tabs on your Portal page you can find the button labeled Create New Project. Clicking this button will allow you to create a new project by entering a Display Name, Description, and Scope. Once the project has been created you can then customize project information, add resources, add members, and follow changes that are occurring in that project.

The Introduction page of each of your projects has a section to add summary text about your project. This section serves as an overview of your project. This is a good area to share information about your project with people that may be team members or viewing your project for the first time.

Add a Resource

On the Resources tab you can find all the Conformance and Example Resources for the project.

If you have “Write” rights to a project you will see an option to +Upload resources at the top of the Project Page. Here you can choose one of the following options:

1. Upload a local file

The following Upload options are available:

  • You can upload .json or .xml
  • You can upload a single resource or multiple in a bundle
  • You can upload a .zip file containing multiple files

2. Fetch a resource from another FHIR server

If you choose to add resources from a FHIR server, you can do a simple GET or a FHIR search. The first will add a single resource, the latter will let you add multiple resources at once.


  • To add a Patient resource with id “example” :
  • To add all Patient resources that conform to the DAF profile:

3. Copy/Paste json or xml code

By selecting the Copy/Paste option, you can add your own json or xml code to add a single resource or a bundle of resources. If your code contains a bundle, you can either upload it as a single resource or select the split bundle check box to upload all entries as separate resources.

Adding multiple resources at once

If you add a batch of resources (via a bundle, a zip, or a search query), you can choose how to publish the resources that are part of the batch. The following options are available:

  • Do not publish these resources automatically
  • Publish these resources when their status is “Active” (examples will always be published)
  • Publish all of them

Canonical Base

Project owners can now customize their canonical URLs to brand their projects. In the future, we will only see canonical URLs as valid if they match the canonical base URL of their project. To choose your URL go to your project and from the Options menu select Canonical Base URLs. Click on the Add URL button and then in the popup specify which base URL you would like to use. Make note that by choosing a canonical URL you are also certifying that it is within your rights to do so.

Add Members

The Members tab displays a list of all the members with rights to that project. In this section you can invite Simplifier and non-Simplifier members to your project by clicking the +Invite User button and typing in an emailaddress.

When adding new members to your project you have the option to assign “Admin”, “Writer”, or “Reader” rights to that user. This assigns their rights within that particular project and can be changed at any time should someone’s function change. Users have the following rights within each role:

  • Admin- Has the rights to change anything within the project with the exception of project ownership.
  • Writer- Has the rights to add, change, and delete resources within the project.
  • Reader- Has the rights to view anything within the project but cannot make any addtions or changes.

Along the top of the Members tab you will find a summary of User information for your project. The number of users, the max users allowed for this project (in accordance with the type of plan you have), and the number of invitations you have pending (the number of users who have a not yet accepted an invitation).


Track Project Changes

On the Log tab you will find event tracking of a project. This log keeps a list of all changes made to resources within the project, along with the name of the person that made changes and the time the changes were made.

At the top of the screen you will find the Atom feed button. This allows you to subscribe to stay informed about any changes being made within your projects. To utilize this feature, navigate to a project on that you are interested in following. Once there click on the “Subscribe” button in the upper right hand corner and copy the link into a feed reader of your choice. You are then ready to start receiving updates.
