    • Hi everyone,I was trying out the access Logging module( https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Access+Logging+Module )Unfortunately, it seems that the module has not been updated toOMRS 1.8.X.I tried installing it, but ended up with the same error as mentionedby Dimithri here - https://answers.openmrs.org/questions/535/error-in-using-the-module-because-detected-attempt-to-redefine-the-prefix-formId wanted to create a ticket for this (and hopefully, also fix it), but Icant seem to find the Access Logging module on the OMRS jiraproject list.Is there a particular reason this is missing from JIRA, or am I lookingin the wrong place ?--Thanks and Best Regards,XYZ
