Dear Dr. Falcon,

First of all, thanks for the quick response and thanks for all the work you  and your team have done and still doing for the health of all humans.

I guess I was not clear about the problem I am having. I have installed gnu health on one machine and configured the company and institution as well as I have added a user as a health professional. I have install Thalamus on another machine and it is running and accepting request as you  can see from the log output  below:

2019-05-17 18:44:50 +0000] [1373] [DEBUG] GET /people/balamood

[2019-05-18 16:11:46 +0000] [1373] [DEBUG] GET /people/admin

my problem is in setting the parameters for the Thalamus server from the other node. I just need to know how to create these users and passwords that Thalamus would accept?

Also if Thalamus is just a message relay how does it authenticate? what does it compare the credentials to when doing the authentication? right now I have an empty DB on the Thalamus node how does it get populated with user credentials?

Please accept my advanced apologies for asking may be stupid questions.

Dear All,

I am a new user and I am working on gnu health for a deployment in
Iraq. I have installed all the packages and they seem to run fine
except that I am faced with some problems using Thalamus. they
problem I am have is that it is asking for a user name and password
in the federation node configuration, were are these user names and
passwords are set? how can I add and manage them?
Please take a look at the following documentation for Thalamus.
Thalamus is the GNU Health Federation Message and Authentication
server. It is great when using a distributed environment, with multiple
health centers.

Technical Guide for the GH Federation

Please note that, when using the Federation ecosystem, the GH HMIS is
just one more node, that would interact with Thalamus and the GH Health
Information and Person Master Index at the Document-oriented DB.

If you're starting, it's probably a good idea to get familiar with the
GH HMIS, and then move on to more involved scenarios, like the

In anycase, please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
