  • The Encounters tab on the patient dashboard is replaced with Visits unless you set the visits.enabled setting to false.

Introduction of Concept Reference Terms

By default, when you upgrade to 1.9, all of your existing concept mappings are mapped as "NARROWER-THAN". If you actually want some of your concept mappings to be "SAME-AS" mappings (which would be the case if you are using mappings to uniquely identify concepts without using their concept id, for example), then before you migrate you can specify this by using the "comment" column of the concept_map table to specify the behavior that you want.

In summary (assuming a 1.6 -> 1.9 upgrade):

  • In your pre-migration 1.6 system, in the concept_map table, update the comment field with the name of the map type that you want to apply to the mapping, prefixed with the words "Map Type: ". Valid concept may type names include "NARROWER-THAN", "SAME-AS", and "BROADER-THAN". For example, you would say: "Map Type: SAME-AS".
  • If you are running a sync environment, the following groovy script might help do this (you'll want to set the source names and map type to meet your own specifications):
def typeName = "Map Type: SAME-AS";
def sourceNames = ["PIH","org.openmrs.module.mdrtb"];
for (sourceName in sourceNames) {
    org.openmrs.ConceptSource source = concept.getConceptSourceByName(sourceName);
    List conceptMaps = concept.getConceptsByConceptSource(source);
    for (conceptMap in conceptMaps) {
      if (!typeName.equals(conceptMap.getComment())) {
        conceptMap.setComment(typeName);
        concept.saveConcept(conceptMap.getConcept());
      }
    }
}

Upgrading

Enhanced Validation

Starting in OpenMRS 1.9, every object that you save is validated (e.g. checking required fields, not allowing duplicate names). Prior to 1.9 this was not always done, so it is likely that existing pre-1.9 databases have data that is invalid, and 1.9 will not let you save those objects without fixing the validation errors.
To avoid running into this situation at unexpected times, you should use the Validation Module module before upgrading in production. There are two approaches:

  • (better approach, because it uses 1.9's actual validation)
    1. Upgrade a copy of your production database on a test server
    2. Use the Validation module on the test server to identify any invalid items
    3. Fix these errors on your production server
    4. repeat, until there are no further validation errors
  • (easier approach, but this uses validation in your running version)
    1. Use the validation module on your existing production server to identify any invalid items
    2. Fix these errors in-place on your production server
    3. repeat, until there are no further validation errors

Release Testing Helper Module

We now offer the Release Testing Helper to help you test the upgrade to OpenMRS 1.9.0 using your existing data. You can get more information about this module by reading Release Testing Helper Module on the OpenMRS Wiki. A video recording of how to use the Release Testing Helper is available on YouTube.

For Developers

Non-Backwards-Compatible Changes for Developers

OpenMRS 1.9 includes a few non-backwards-compatible changes from version 1.8:

  • Form no longer has the xslt and template properties. Use the new FormResource API.
  • Encounter provider is no longer a mere person but has to be in the new provider tables. So a provider may not be a person. And each encounter provider has to be associated with an encounter role.
  • Hibernate upgraded.  See Non-backwards-compatible changes to Hibernate's Type API

End Of Life (EOL) announcement

OpenMRS 1.6 is no longer supported

As of described in Unsupported Releases (EOL), OpenMRS can only support up to three released versions at a time (the current release and then two versions back). With the release of OpenMRS 1.9.0, support is no longer provided by the core Development Team for OpenMRS 1.6.x and earlier. This announcement also serves as advance notice that support will end for OpenMRS 1.7.x, concurrent with the release of OpenMRS 1.10.

  1. In the future, I think data model changes should all be described, also how previous version data has been moved into the new model.
