Continuing the discussion from What is the best way to do a clinical summary?:
@arbaughj, I presume you’d do this via the hack that we discovered where since you can define apps (via JSON in a textarea in the admin UI) you can therefore define an empty app that has extensions in it.
Is that documented in the right place? I see https://wiki.openmrs.org/x/l5vKB but I wonder if it would be better if we could get you to write a tutorial-style piece which starts out with a use case, and describes how you do it.
Thanks @darius. I’ll be happy to add some how-to use-case examples to the page you mention once I figure out how to do it myself.
I was specifically thinking of writing up some examples on a shared page (similar to the form bank) for the json to configure the registration app; how to add additional person attribute fields, address hierarchy, manual identifier entry, retrospective entry, etc.
Where was that goldmind of a document on configuring apps with JSON when I started working on this? I added a short section and a link to the full document on the Reference Application 2.3 page.
I have added a little more documentation at…
Specifically, how to “define an empty app that has extensions in it” so you can link to somewhere else. Thanks @darius for the hint.
I also added a section to that page so you can easily find the Reporting UI App Configuration instructions.
I created a new documentation page for Registration App Configuration.
