Hello @monasaleh! I am from the team that created the OpenHMIS Inventory module and can point you in the right direction to get started (I hope!).

The general instructions for installing modules into OpenMRS can be found here. Then the specific installation steps for installing the OpenHMIS Inventory module can be found here. Feel free to ask any questions you that you have about the module!

Hello @ibewes , where can I find the (manage modules) page?

I found it, then I chose to upload the module and I searched for the module to add it and had the following errors.

when I clicked for details, I got the following error:

Didn’t you have any changes of using Manage Modules icon in the home page (it’s actually a part of SysAdmin OWA)? From it, you can directly search it and install into your system. Actually it requires some other modules also, you can simply go through it by our updated Module Management page (otherwise you need to install those missing dependencies)

I guess I’ve been out of the OpenMRS loop for a while because I didn’t even know about that Manage Modules feature!

@monasaleh As Suthagar mentioned, you will need to install the other required modules to start up the Inventory module. The specific modules that are required are mentioned in the Inventory module installation steps I linked above.

I installed OpenHMIS Cashier Module , and openhmis.backboneforms 2.3, openhmis.commons 3.0, jasperreport 1.5.6 modules, but I still get the same error. I tried upgrade rather than load module and still got the same error. Any thoughts on what I may be missing?

I tried a different path, I chose system administration, then manage modules, then got an error.

I tried to load the (form entry module), but got the error (Module formentryapp has been stopped)!

Hi @monasaleh, what version of openmrs standalone are you using? I normally use the following path:

System Administration -> Advanced Administration -> Manage Modules -> Add Module

I would suggest you start with a new instance of the standalone and use the above process.

To get the Inventory module to work, you’ll need to install the dependencies in this order:

commons

backboneforms

jasper

inventory

cashier
