What's included?

See how our enterprise extensions can help you and your staff deliver more-streamlined connections, and a more secure organization.

  • Advanced Alerting

    Advanced Alerting provides metric, exception, and state-based monitoring of channels and connectors. Additional features include automatic escalation and de-escalation, scheduling, and notification throttling. Using advanced alerts, dynamically send different alert messages to different user groups based on the current escalation level, time, and day. The new alert dashboard provides a view of all alert statistics and logs.

  • ASTM E1381 Transmission Mode

    ASTM E1381 for Mirth Connect allows you to send and receive data using the ASTM E1381 lower-layer protocol standard. It can be used in conjunction with the TCP Connector or the Serial Connector. By default the official ASTM E1381 standard is strictly followed, but there are several settings available to support variations from the standard. The extension supports specifying the bytes used for frame delimiters, the checksum algorithm used, various timeouts, and much more.

  • ASTM E1394 Data Type

    ASTM E1394 for Mirth Connect allows you to easily accept, parse, and transform messages following the ASTM E1394 data standard. As with other data types, an incoming message will be serialized into a simple XML format, and all the usual transformer steps may then be used to transform the message, or to convert it to or from a different data type. Several data type properties are also provided for specifying how messages should be converted to and from XML. A standard vocabulary for the ASTM E1394 data type is also included to help identify fields in the message template trees of a transformer.

  • Channel History

    Get configuration management for all of your critical channels using the Channel History plug-in. You can view and compare past revisions of channel configurations—and identify the user making changes. Plus, revert to a past revision from the embedded viewer.

  • Email Reader

    Securely connect to a POP3 or IMAP email server and download email messages for processing in a channel using the Email Reader. With the Message Content parameter, you can specify if an individual email message should be read as XML, including the metadata and the body, as just the body, or as a set of attachments. Access numerous options for specifying behavior once a message is read.

  • LDAP Authorization

    The LDAP Authorization replaces the existing authentication mechanism and instead authenticates against an LDAP server so you can manage user accounts on a centralized LDAP server. Any user contained within the specified User Base DN on the LDAP server can log in to Mirth Connect. When a user logs in, Mirth Connect copies the user’s attributes from the LDAP server. The connection to the LDAP server can optionally use SSL or STARTTLS encryption.

  • Message Generator

    With the Message Generator, quickly and easily generate HL7 v2.x messages for use as a transformer’s inbound or outbound template, for sending to a channel, or for testing. Create messages of any type/trigger and any version (HL7 2.1 through 2.6), with specific options for which segments, fields, and components to include. Where applicable, pseudo data is generated (dates, names, free text, and even random values from the HL7 specification tables), though there are also several options to override parts of the message with your own data.

  • SSL Manager

    Use the SSL Manager to quickly enable and configure certificate-based SSL connectivity for socket-based connectors such as the HTTP Listener/Sender, Web Service Listener/Sender, and FTP Reader/Writer. The central settings view allows you to manage and store your certificates in one location. Trusted certificates and advanced SSL settings such as client (two-way) authentication and host name verification can be applied on a per-connector basis.

  • Serial Connector

    The Serial Connector allows Mirth Connect to send and receive data over serial communication ports, such as those compliant with the RS-232 standards. Any installed transmission mode may be used in conjunction with the connectors, including a raw serial mode, MLLP, or the ASTM E1381 mode. Options are available to select the port to connect to, the baud rate, the parity, and much more, allowing for fully customizable communication.

  • User Authorization

    User Authorization provides role-based access control to all aspects of the Mirth Connect Administrator. Create new roles with specific permissions to areas such as channel management or message browsing. Assign any number of roles to users. Use this to manage access to sensitive channel and messaging data across your enterprise.

  • Advanced Clustering

    The Advanced Clustering plug-in improves the availability of your Mirth Connect cluster with automatic message takeover. If one server in the cluster fails, another server will automatically resume processing of any queued or unfinished messages from the failed server. Managing your cluster becomes easier as you can monitor the status of each server, deploy/start/stop/pause channels across all servers, and view message statistics for the whole cluster or a particular server from the Mirth Connect dashboard. This plug-in can be used with standalone Mirth Connect instances using your own load-balancing solution, but also seamlessly integrates with the load-balancing and failover services provided on Mirth Appliances.
