This is Part 1 of a series of posts describing the usage and benefits of utilizing mirthSync with Mirth Connect instances. Future posts will cover more sophisticated usages that allow for you to safely manage environments and view changes being applied.
mirthSync is an open source tool developed by Saga-IT LLC that interacts with the excellent NextGen Connect© (formerly known as Mirth Connect) healthcare IT integration engine to provide many useful benefits to both the open source and closed source versions of Mirth Connect.
Please keep in mind that mirthSync is a free and open source tool that is under active development. Ensure that you have read the License and understand that Saga-IT LLC or any project contributors are not responsible for any issues related to use of the tool. We highly recommend that you utilize the tool only with development or staging environments.
In the previous post we have an overview of mirthSync and indicated that it can be used for many purposes beyond just simple pulling and pushing of Mirth Connect channels and configuration. In this post we will demonstrate how mirthSync can be integrated with Git and Git's features can be used to track changes to view, review, and if necessary roll back changes to code and configuration.
At Saga-IT utilizing mirthSync is a vital part of our workflow. It enables us to track and visualize changes to our environments over time which gives us extra confidence to make even significant changes and enhancements without risk.
