Auto Unique Identifiers-Alphanumetical

Hi,

Can anyone take me through how my tracker capture can automatically generate Unique IDs with a specific algorithm such as first two letters of the first name, first two letters of the surname, last two digits of the year of birth and area code.

Has anyone done this successfully? Or has anyone used another software to generate this kind of UIC.

Thanks

Stanley,

See JIRA issue for this - Stian is currently working on it.

Hey have you found a solution for this?

Hi,

Auto-generated numbers can now be a combination of sections (random numbers, dates, orgunits) - see the relevant manual(s) for details

Actually I was looking for a solution that concatenate few track entity attribute and generate unique identifier. Finally solved the issue by writing a program rule.

In my rule I have concatenated
Unique Identifier code = First letter of Gender + Org unit code + First 2 character of patient name + birth rank + First 2 character of mother name.
