Welcome to the VonkLoader documentation

Installing

VonkLoader is a free, multithreaded tool for Windows / macOS / Linux to upload resources in bulk to any FHIR server. To install, go to simplifier.net/downloads and log in.

Running

Available parameters are:

-file:<filename>
    zip file with xml and/or json files with resources, mandatory
-server:<url>
    FHIR server base address, mandatory
-limit:x
    load no more than x resources, default is all the resources in the zip
-parallel:
    how many requests are sent in parallel, default is 10
-collectionHandling: AsIs / Split / Batch
    AsIs: send a collection Bundle as is (to /Bundle)
    Split: send each of the Bundle.resource's from a collection Bundle separately (STU3 only)
    Batch: convert the collection Bundle to a batch Bundle and send it to the server base address (STU3 only)
-allowCreate
    if a resource has no id, issue a create. Default: ignore resources without id.
