Implementation Question

Post by SPHCDave » Thu Aug 01, 2019 1:30 pm

I am working to add some hooks for payment functionality and insurance eligibility for my customers.
I do not want to fork the code so I want to use hooks to call our own plugins.
Once we determine the changes and where they will be placed, are we responsible for recompiling the modifications and deploying Open Dental at the customer site?
Or is this something that Open Dental takes care of?

The way this process works, you identify the locations you want the hooks and post those hook requests to this forum. Then we will commit the hooks ourselves. Your customers will then be able to download the normal version of Open Dental and it will have all the hooks you need for your program. This page describes it a bit more: https://www.opendental.com/site/patternplugins.html.
