Continuing the discussion from Preferred Identifier - Patient Registration + Removing Automatic Assignment Question:
When a patient is created, they are automatically assigned an OpenMRS ID as an identifier.
Depending on where they go next, they will get additional identifiers that are manually entered, however we are running into an error where encounter forms cannot be saved because the patient does not have a preferred identifier.
I have looked through the documentation, but I cannot see how to make a patient identifier the preferred one.
Also how does the search work if patients have different identifiers as their preferred ones?
