Merci d'avoir répondu à ma question. En fouillant sur google j'ai vu les choses sont très compliqué à mon niveau. Du fait que je viens juste d'installer ODK build et ODK Aggregat (PostgreSQL et Tomcat).
Je voudrais savoir les étapes pour déployer la base de donnée ODK et OpenHDS qui sont dans mon WAMP dans Tomcat?
Après avoir déployer ces deux base de données je veux une fois le formulaire envoyé dans ODKAggregate je puisse le lié avec OpenHDS.

Merci, j'espere que suis compréhensible. je suis débutant.

Bonjour @abdoul. Si je comprends bien, vous voulez établir un flux de données comme celui décrit dans ce schéma, c'est bien ça? Et vous avez installé Aggregate avec succès et voulez maintenant installer OpenHDS et connecter les deux systèmes?

@aurdipas I notice that you are one of the authors on the paper that this diagram comes from and one of the developers of OpenHDS! Do you know where @abdoul could find documentation for setting up such a system? @Cleopas_Hwinya I see you also use OpenHDS so perhaps you have ideas too.


Hi @LN, yes I'm one of the authors and of the paper and one of the main developers of OpenHDS.

Bonjour @abdoul. Vous pouvez trouver le manuel openHDS et les informations pour la configuration dans le GitHub repository suivant:

you will have to use MirthConnect to validate data form odk database.. this data will then be processed by mirthconnect and sent to opehds database..
I can help deploy the system


Hello, I have odk and openhds setup on 3 servers which are currently runing but I get error "FAILED TO CONNECT TO OPENHDS ENTITIES" on two of the three servers when i'm syncing the data onto the tablet. At first I thought it was the TASK under the routine utility but it seems Otherwise. I would be grateful if you could help me out.

Good evening @Cleopas_Hwinya. I hope you are well. I just saw your speech and I'm really interested in your words. I would like you to explain to me in practice please, in your own words, how you do the transfer of your data from ODK to Openhds using Mirth Connect. I have read (translating) the manual but I confess that I did not understand the method. Thank you for helping me understand
