OpenMRSBot IRC Bots

This page describes bots used for our IRC channel. For more information in IRC, check our IRC Home


OpenMRSBot is our automated assistant in the #OpenMRS IRC channel, announcing feeds from JIRA and CI.

The bot is running on a loaned infrastructure, and we have primitive access to reconfigure it and restart it. It's a supybot/limnoria bot.

In the future, we'll move it to our own infrastructure:

Error rendering macro 'jira' : Unable to locate Jira server for this macro. It may be due to Application Link configuration.

 Commands per plugin...

If you send a private message to the bot, you can list all plugins ( list ) and list all commands per plugin ( list <plugin> ). Some of the commands might not work.

You should be able to call most commands from a private message with the bot. Using  help <plugin> <command>  will explain each command.
