Compartment and external references


Hey there,

How would compartment work with external references?

Based on the spec here,, we can access compartment through GET [base]/Patient/[id]/Condition. This makes sense if the resource exists on the same server but what about if the reference is specified as absolute reference pointing to a resource exists somewhere else?

How should we handle this case?



we haven’t addressed this because search only covers resources accessible through the server (whether they are stored there, or elsewhere), so the search syntax only addresses local references.
