Reference Profile

Using Profiles with Pinpoint

Pinpoint works by parsing messages against a reference profile (or specification). The default setting is to parse against the HL7 version specified in the Version ID field of the MSH segment. However, you can also set the reference profile manually, as follows:

  1. In the main menu, select Tools, Options.
  2. Open the Reference Profile tab.
  3. Make sure the Use Reference Profile checkbox is checked.
  4. In the Profiles tab, select a profile. Click OK. This will change the reference profile used to parse logs loaded into Pinpoint.


The default profile library is in %AllUsersProfile%\Application Data\Caristix\Common\Library\library.cxl. If you want to load an alternate profile library, click the Browse button.
