dhis2 2.16 Tracking where should go system generated identifier from 2.13

Dear All,

We are using individual patient tracking in 2.13 version. Recently we converted it in 2.16 version.

Now facing problem with system generated identifier. This is not available in 2.16.

We have a big amount of individual patient record which is included system generated identifier in table “patientidentifier” column “identifier”

But column “identifier” do not have any relation with “patientidentifiertype” table

so that this value is not coming is “trackedentityattribute” and “trackedentityattribute” value table

However, Could you please tell me in 2.16 or 2.18 have any system generated identifier for tracking person. if it is not then how can i ensure all patient has unique identifier manually?

Its important issue for us to do tracking and existing individual patient record.

Thanks a lot.
