Step 11: Implementing Elastic search on HIPAA security policy

Suggest edit Updated on September 18, 2020

To enable the elastic search for properties that are obfuscate using HIPAA policy below Settings required in Search Landing Page:

Access the settings by logging into the system as an administrator and clicking Designer Studio > System > Settings > Search.

Advanced search queries (Lucene syntax search queries) are not allowed on an object when Access Control Policies are defined in that class.

  • In this case, it is recommended that you use full-text search (on Custom Search Properties) instead of searching with Lucene syntax.
  • If ABAC is enabled for a property, it cannot be marked for full-text search. Therefore, if we want a property to be secured and use it in elastic search, that property should be used as a filter in a Report Definition. So, in the context of pxRetrieveSearchData, all the RD filters will be transformed into Elastic search settings.
