Implementing Elasticsearch on HIPAA security policy

Updated on April 23, 2021

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

Pega Foundation for Healthcare

Access the settings by logging into the system as an administrator and clicking Dev 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 Elasticsearch settings.
