Here's an update on what's new in Simplifier 30.6, including new features for guides, invites and canonical claims and a resolved security issue around private packages.

Security issue

Firely is ISO 27001 certified and has set high standards for data security. As such, we noticed in routine testing that metadata from a subset of private packages on Simplifier had inadvertently been loaded to the public FHIR Package Registry. This involved package metadata (like the name, description and author of the package) and metadata on the resources therein (including the resource name, type and canonical). The actual content of the FHIR resources were not disclosed.

We have immediately removed this data from the registry and will only start loading data again when the bug has been resolved. Our analysis indicates that this affected less than three percent of the total amount of packages and that this metadata has seen very limited actual views on the registry. If you would like to learn more, please reach out to our support team. We apologize for this incident and will take care to prevent this in the future.

Other improvements

  • Canonical claim matching is now smarter and will no longer prompt you to add all variations of your URLs as claims. Just claim the longest part of the URL that is shared among a large set of your resources.
  • We have substantially improved the invite process, removing many steps, supporting the invite of many users at once and allowing you to specify a message in the invite.
  • Supporting the breadcrumbs widget in guide templates, to allow a nice trail of the page hierarchy in your guides.
  • Supporting the page widget for rendering the contents of another page, including rendering the widgets from that page.
  • Support setting the subject of the page with name (by resource name) or canonical (by canonical URL).
