What SSL certificate to use when developing integration for PDS and GP Connect

We’re currently working to develop tracing a patient in PDS followed by fetching their HTML access record. I understand that the authentication is TLS MA. Authentication is present in the scenarios that we have to develop against for the SCAL.

My question is: what’s the best way to implement the TLS MA when developing against the sandbox environments so that we can prove the implementation for the SCAL? Is it recommended to use self-signed certificates while developing against the sandbox?

Hi @isla.zhang

Can you confirm which version of PDS you are using and the access mode.

Is it the Personal Demographics Service - FHIR API?

Kind regards,
Ernest

Hi @ernest.kissiedu1 !

Indeed - it is indeed the FHIR API for PDS. Although my question about certificates relates to accessing the GP Connect HTML record also.

Thank you!

Hi @isla.zhang

I have reached out to the GP Connect team to contact you directly. If I receive any further responses, I will update you.

Kind regards,
Ernest

Hi Isla, is this query in relation to a specific requirement in the GP Connect SCAL or PDS onboarding SCAL?
Many Thanks,
