      Description

      Request: to have an InfoPath form be able to reference a global property value.

      Use case: At FACES we now have one (synchronized) OpenMRS server at each healthcare location, so all encounters entered on one server are only for that location. We would like to code our InfoPath forms so that they either default to that location or force it.

      We could hardcode location ID in the InfoPath form, but that would require maintaining a version of each form for each location. With this feature, we could use global properties on each server to identify the location of that server, and distribute the same set of forms to all servers. Users could only enter forms for that server location (or default to that server location).
