Easy tickets for beginners

I have tried to check some of the available tickets, but they seem conplicated for a beginner like me, are there simpler tickets for starters?

I have added more intro tickets. Can you take a second look?


Hello, I’m begginner OpenMRS developer, never using JIRA before. I need help how to start actually… I want to take quiz https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/omrs-dev1 but I need to provide some informations

Please copy & paste here the URL for one OpenMRS issue in JIRA that you’ve claimed for work.

(The URL must match the pattern ‘https://issues.openmrs.org/browse/{ticket}’. If you have claimed multiple issues, just list the first you claimed.)

*Please copy & paste here the URL for at least one pull request you’ve submitted under the OpenMRS organization.

(This must be in the form ‘https://github.com/openmrs/{repository}/pull/{id}’. If you have submitted multiple pull requests, just list the first you submitted.)

I suspect that I have to assign myself to something, so I would like to start with something easy, can anyone help me how to do it? I’m really beginner :slight_smile:

kindly look at this and post you doubts if you have any… https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Getting+Started+as+a+Developer

Ok, my question is: do I have to “Download and install the OpenMRS SDK .” ?

I have Java, IntelliJ, MySQL installed before.

@karolskolasinski Take a look at instruction number 6 under this https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Getting+Started+as+a+Developer.

To add on @emiriga suggestion,You dont need to download openmrs sdk , AM seeing you are trying to work on your ticket, it depends on which ticket that your working on here . Feel free to ask more questions to get more ideas

ok, I downloaded openmrs from github. I have some configurations to do (screen).

If I would like to take one easy ticket, which one do you suggest?

To be able to work on a ticket of your choice, kindly select a ticket from this jira site https://issues.openmrs.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa. Since its an introductory ticket, its complexity should be low and in a ready to work state more tips can be found on his link https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Tickets

Hopefully you are following every step outlined on the link @rishabh997 and @emiriga shared

before. Though you can run a standalone instance instead of SDK as stated by @sharif but still you have to ensure you have all the required soft wares in their correct versions for you will need them to build a successful project after making changes. That can be solved by following this link https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/OpenMRS+SDK. As an individual I feel it will be better to download the SDK. Interact with the UI, create your first module, watch, play around with the app to get familiar with it by doing that when you work on tickets it will give you a clear picture on where to make the changes.



This might be something to incorporate into volunteer onboarding docs! Having a link to a maintained Wiki page with good tasks for someone just starting out. Tagging @jennifer for when she gets back from her hopefully restful vacation!

@madhens, yes! I think that page is a great place for developers to get started and maybe that is a part of the set of volunteer onboarding docs? I also like that it includes community priorities to pick from - and ask myself if those priorities could have its own stand alone page so that it’s easy for anyone in the community to find?
