Clarification about operation definition URLs


#1

Reading through the spec, found that each operation definition (validate a resource, fetch patient record, etc.)* has an official URL for the operation definition, like:

http://hl7.org/fhir/OperationDefinition/Resource-validate

or

http://hl7.org/fhir/OperationDefinition/Patient-everything

Since those URLs do not resolve to a resource, got 404 on all of them, shouldn’t those be URIs instead of URLs?

Or is the idea to actually locate a resource on those URLs in the future?

Thanks,
Pablo.

The canonical URLs should ideally resolve, but they don’t have to. Can you submit a change request for us to create the relevant redirects?


#3

Can you expand a little bit?

Where are CR’s submitted to? What redirects are you referring to?

Thanks.

At the bottom of every page in the spec there’s a “propose a change” link. You’ll need to register. After that you can propose whatever changes you like The redirects will cause the canonical URLs to resolve to where the operations are actually described.
