Overview

OpenMRS Legacy Module contains a lot of administrative functionalities which are needed to manage the reference application. Most of this administrative functionalities contain a legacy model and less experience to the users. So OpenMRS Community wanted to migrate those administrative features to the Modern view.  More Metadata Management in AdminUI project is one of those projects which are designed to migrate some of these administrative functionalities to the modern view. In the More  Meta data Management in AdminUI project will focus on this following functionalities while migrating,

  1. Manage modules

  2. System Information

  3. Manage Scheduler

Those features are implemented as Open Web Apps with the modern view to the users.

Project Goals

  1. Migrate the legacy functionalities to the modern open web apps

    1. Manage Modules

    2. System Information

    3.  Manage Schedule

  2. Increase the user experience and feasibility of the legacy functionalities

    1. Use some better user interfaces instead of legacy model

    2. Change the workflow of the functionalities to increase the usability

    3. Simplify the administrative functionalities for the users.

  3. Extend the usage of the legacy functionalities with REST APIs

  4. Extend the administrative features using existing functionalities

  5. Improve the problems which are identified in the legacy UI modal

    1. Implement Module Drag and Drop features

    2. Implement Module Information page

    3. Allow user to directly download the modules from OpenMRS Addons

    4. Increase the System Information view

    5. Implement Real Time Task Execute features

Implementation

Those features are implemented as an Open Web App and included into the SysAdmin Open Wep App. 

Used technologies for the developments, 

  • Front End Development : HTML, CSS, Angular JS, jQuery
  • Back End Development: Java, REST API
