Testing of FHIR2 endpoints was done by: and we are left with testing of REST-WS module's endpoints. This wiki describes the process we are following to test the REST-WS endpoints.

For REST-WS module we are using this google sheet( ) to log testing activities. Later, data from the sheet will be used to develop an automated rest endpoint testing system and we will deprecate the manual testing of rest endpoints for future releases. We are only proceeding with the manual testing due to time constraints and absence of an established end to end rest-endpoint testing system for platform releases.=
