Project Initialization

Medplum implements a custom Project/$init operation, which can create a new Project and set up the admin user, resulting in a ready-to-use empty Project.

Invoke the $init operation


For example:

curl '$init' \
-H "Content-Type: application/fhir+json" \
-H "Authorization: Bearer MY_ACCESS_TOKEN" \
-d '{"resourceType":"Parameters", "parameter":[ {"name":"name", "valueString":"Test Project"} ]}'
