Agenda Topics


  • Call to Order

  • Approve Meeting Minutes

July 13 minutes approval, motion DH/EN, 

approved 6-0-0

  • JIRA

HQ hired a new team member to work on Jira. The new person will work on issues, largely focused on UTG tickets; of which there are more than 100.

Jira will be upgraded to the latest version after the WGM.

  • Confluence

Confluence was down last week as there was a vulnerability in HL7's data center version and the server had to be upgraded to mitigate vulnerability. The server was upgraded to version 7.4. Because of use of dynamic IP, the site was down longer than desired.

Because of Connectathon/WGM there's a lot activity on Confluence. 

The upgrade to Confluence Data Center allows for more data storage for HL7 repositories, etc.  Over 1TB of storage is available.

  • Website

Last month we switched to the paid version of Badglist; which provides educational badges and proof of credentialing on websites.

Clean up of main website continues; moving detailed items is moving over to Confluence.

Deleting old WG minutes off of the document center prior to 2015; all are being archived.

The archived files would need to be requested via HQ; they would not be posted on the web.

  • New PSS Process Updates
DH updates: still piloting the process on Jira, there have not been significant issues, and at the next Co-chair general availability of the new process will announced. Likely going live after WGM.
