Morning,

I used to be able to pull down a PDF document from the documentreference resource from POSTMAN.  It does not appear to work anymore.  Did something change with the FHIR spec?

Hi, 

Per our group guidelines, could you please post the X-Request-Id associated with your request? This is located in the headers of the response.

Thanks,
Ben (Cerner)

Hi Kirk,

We need the specific X-Request-Id, not the ID of the resource. Below is a screenshot of where the request ID is located in postman.

Hi Kirk,

It looks like you either aren't passing in an Accept header or are passing in an invalid value. For Binary, the Accept header must either be application/json+fhir or application/pdf.

Thanks,

Hi Kirk,

We've resolved the underlying issue resulting in the 500s. However, you may have trouble retrieving this particular document as it seems to be rather large, you will likely receive timeouts (or 504s). You may want to consider calling for a different document.

Thanks,
Ben (Cerner)
