Does that mean you are not able to create the patient on that server? https://uat-refapp.openmrs.org/openmrs/registrationapp/registerPatient.page?appId=referenceapplication.registrationapp.registerPatient

Yes exactly. I still get the same error.

(Daniel Kayiwa) #23

I just created a patient on that server without any errors. Am i missing something?

(Nicolas Piaget) #24

Sorry just got back to my office.

It seems that the changes I have made are gone in the Patient Identifier admin. Are you available now to test it? Or any time later? I can apply the changes and you try as well.

(Daniel Kayiwa) #25

Yes am available.

(Nicolas Piaget) #26

OK thanks! I will do the changes now and let you know when they are done.

(Nicolas Piaget) #27

OK I have done the changes and check registration. I’m not able to register a new patient:

Validation errors found: Select a preferred identifier

What are the exact changes that you made on this server?

  1. On https://uat-refapp.openmrs.org/openmrs/admin/patients/patientIdentifierType.form?patientIdentifierTypeId=3:

    • Identifier validator to none
  2. On https://uat-refapp.openmrs.org/openmrs/module/idgen/manageIdentifierSources.list:

    • Add a new source for OpenMRS ID of type Local Pool of Identifiers with the name: Generator for ELWA ID
  3. On https://uat-refapp.openmrs.org/openmrs/module/idgen/viewIdentifierSource.form?source=2

    • Upload a file with the following content:


  4. On https://uat-refapp.openmrs.org/openmrs/module/idgen/editAutoGenerationOption.form?autoGenerationOption=1

    • Change the Source to Auto-generate to Generator for ELWA ID

Can you attach the exact file of identifiers that you used to upload?

(Nicolas Piaget) #31

Thank you very much Daniel for the follow up!

Here is the file:

ELWA_ID_pool.txt (163 Bytes)

Hey Daniel,

Did you have a change to look at the problem? Do you know if the problem is coming from a wrong configuration on my side or if is a code issue?

I was wondering if the problem would still arise if I allow the manual override of the primary identifier in the registration app. However the documentation is a bit short on this:


Could anyone help me with this ?


(Daniel Kayiwa) #33

I have noted that for those changes to take effect, you need to restart OpenMRS. Can you do so?

(Nicolas Piaget) #34

Yes, it worked. Everything is working fine now.

Thank you very much for your help. Highly appreciated!
