Looking for the OpenMRS 2.6.0 Platform Release Manager

Thanks @tendomart , quick question though. How do we test using the UAT Server. Could you point me to a resource or two?

more clarity here too!

Did you deploy it anywhere? of you just went ahead with release.

There is this https://uat-platform.openmrs.org/openmrs/owa/addonmanager/index.html#/login

But the best option would be to have Refapp 2.12.0 run on top of 2.6.0-alpha, though not mandatory

You can use Refapp 2.12.0 run on alpha 2.6.0 if not testing platform directly, for all or some of the features at the alpha 2.6.0 wiki https://uat-refapp.openmrs.org/openmrs/login.htm

Deployed it on UAT Platform Server.

I think this would make testing abit easy

Yeah it would.

i have gone through a couple of resources on UAT Platform and none seems to really describe how testing of platform can be done on the UAT Platform Server.

Any help rendered to me in that regard is highly welcome @tendomart @kdaud

@mherman22 Nothing really hard, the Idea is look at the Tickets done at your Release notes page, those are things you need to test, using the Refapp.

Some are deployment Issues and may require a local setup or a remote setup to test the container state instance it’s self like [TRUNK-6083] Build and deploy docker image for openmrs-core - OpenMRS Issues, for such an issue, you can pull the image and spin a container on your local machine or still setup the container on one of the remote servers on the openmrs infra.


This server is running platform 2.6.0-alpha: qa-refapp.openmrs.org

It would be enough if some rudimentary testing is done to ensure that all the features here: Reference Application 2.11.0 - Documentation - OpenMRS Wiki, work as advertised.


Thanks @tendomart , this is really helpful.

Great. I will share the talkpost for everyone to test out the 2.6.0-alpha and I’ll take part too in the process.

Thanks @dkayiwa

I think it’s about time we moved ahead and began on the beta release since the time set for the alpha release testing is done..

Was any testing done? If yes, how did it go? What were the results?

Tested against the https://qa-refapp.openmrs.org/openmrs/referenceapplication/home.page using the qaframework feature workflows. I did this locally.

checkoout → OpenMRS Platform 2.6.0-alpha Testing - Google Sheets for the results.

And i think everything looks okay unless i missed something.

Then your suggestion of moving to beta makes sense. :slight_smile:

We are getting the following when we try to release core 2.6.0-beta to maven.

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-deploy-plugin:2.7:deploy (default-deploy) on project openmrs: Failed to deploy artifacts: Could not find artifact org.openmrs:openmrs:pom:2.6.0-beta in openmrs-repo-releases (https://mavenrepo.openmrs.org/nexus/content/repositories/releases) -> [Help 1]

@mherman22 did which release number did you use, it’s complaining 2.6.0-beta

*[ERROR] mvn release:perform failed. Fix the problem and try another release number.*

I deleted the tag 2.6.0-beta and release again.

And did you make the version 2.6.0-beta-SNAPSHOT

Thanks for deleting the tag. i am gonna release again.

Yes and Here are the custom variables i used


/cc: @tendomart

@mherman22 isn’t the development version supposed to be 2.6.0-SNAPSHOT instead of 2.6.0-beta-SNAPSHOT ?

and what’s the build.release.type ?

isn’t this variable available in platform and not core?

lemi use the 2.6.0-SNAPSHOT as advised

I meant to ask the value for which you set it to releases or prereleases

yeah, that plan variable is available in platform
