General remarks:


  • OpenID Connect authentication for local users is now available for the FHIR server, which is acting as an OIDC client authenticating users for the HTML frontend via Authorization Code Flow.
  • OAuth Bearer Token Authentication supports clients in directly interacting with the FHIR rest webservice.
  • Authorization extensions were added to ActivityDefinition resources which allow plugins to configure execution of processes for users.
  • The FHIR _summary parameter is available as defined by the specification.
  • The DSF FHIR docker image contains a default "external" bundle.xml file to create the local Organization and Endpoint resources and therefore no longer needs to be mounted via a docker-volume.
  • The process plugin API has been redesigned. Process plugins are now build for a specific API version that will be supported across future DSF versions.
  • A new HTML view allows starting processes via Task resources with status draft.
  • The authorization rule for draft Task resources was modified to allow creation of Tasks even if the Task would not be allowed to be executed.
  • A business-key input parameter is automatically added via DSF BPE server TaskHandler if not set by user, so that executed processes can be traced better.
  • Two new organization-roles are now available: DTS, UAC.
  • The helper classes for Task and QuestionnaireResponse resources have been adapted to the new process plugin API.
  • The documentation generator can now be used as a maven plugin using compile-time only annotations.
  • The code base has been migrated to Java 17 and uses the new namespace.
  • The Jetty config properties are now aligned with all other existing dev.dsf... properties.
  • A common forward proxy server config with config parameters for: url, username, password and a no-proxy list is available and can be accessed via the process plugin API.
  • The database migration steps have been streamlined as much as possible because there is no backwards
    compatibility with 0.9.x and older versions.
  • Maven modules are now released via maven central.
  • Self hosted runners are now provided to circumvent RAM and CPU shortages in GitHub hosted runners.


  • It is no longer possible to define dependencies between processes.
  • It is no longer possible to deploy processes as folders.
  • FHIR Metadata resources, profiles and authorization rules only needed for HiGHmed processes have been removed.
  • Modules that are not considered as core modules of the DSF but are process specific have been removed: dsf-consent, dsf-mpi, dsf-openehr, dsf-pseudonymization, dsf-bpe-webservice-client
  • The deprecated organization-type CodeSystem and ValueSet have been removed.
  • The plugin folder has beed hidden from standard deployments. Processes should be released as fat-jars containing the "old" plugins.
  • The VM-based test-setup has been removed in favor of the docker-based test-setup.
