Release 4.0.1 – Lessons Learned in Development

My team just released IBM FHIR Server 4.0.1

A few things, I learned:

To Reset a Tag

# Reset a Tag
git tag -d 4.0.1
git push origin --delete 4.0.1
git tag 4.0.1
git push --tags

End to End Windows Tests 

I used a powershell and added an archive step.

# Create the Zip File
$compress = @{
LiteralPath= $pre_it_logs
CompressionLevel = Fastest
DestinationPath = $zip_file

Compress-Archive @compress Force

Also a step to test our server, but hit an issue with the certificate

# Ignore Self Signed Certificates and use TLS
# Reference
$AllProtocols = [System.Net.SecurityProtocolType]Ssl3,Tls,Tls11,Tls12
[System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = $AllProtocols
Add-Type TypeDefinition @”
using System.Net;
using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;
public class TrustAllCertsPolicy : ICertificatePolicy {
public bool CheckValidationResult(
ServicePoint srvPoint, X509Certificate certificate,
WebRequest request, int certificateProblem) {
return true;
$AllProtocols = [System.Net.SecurityProtocolType]Ssl3,Tls,Tls11,Tls12
[System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = $AllProtocols
[System.Net.ServicePointManager]::CertificatePolicy = New-Object TrustAllCertsPolicy
