What I’d like us to do next is to develop a basic UI for setting up module’s metadata. What I propose is that any module can create mappings it requires and then a system administrator can go to the manage metadata mappings to point mappings to the actual metadata in the system or create the actual metadata and set mappings for you.
Alongside we’ll add support for mappings to HTML Form Entry module so that you can start referencing metadata using mappings instead of their names or UUIDs in html forms. @mogoodrich, we’d like to validate the approach with you at some point. If you have any initial thoughts, they are much appreciated!
The work is to support the Vertical Packaging from OpenMRS Road Map.
@kosmik, would you be able to help us over the next 2-4 weeks?
@tomgriffin, would you be interested in working along to setup the sprint, do some UI mocks or just do some thinking around it?
