Installing the Indicia modules for Drupal

The Indicia modules for Drupal provide a content type that allows pages which interact with Indicia to be easily created. Page types include data input forms, reports, maps and others.

To install the modules, create a folder called custom under your Drupal installation’s module folder. Then take one of the following approaches:

Option 1 - Direct file download

Download the latest iForm release from ( file) and unzip it to /modules/custom/ so you have a folder called iform inside the custom folder.

Download the latest Indicia features release from (Source code) and extract it to /modules/custom/ so you have a folder called indicia_features inside the custom folder.

Option 2 - Installation using Git

If you are using Git to manage files, then you can do the following instead:

git clone --recursive iform
git clone indicia_features

Once you have the files in place using either method, visit Extend in your Drupal website’s admin toolbar (logged in as admin) and enable the following modules:

  • Indicia forms

  • Easy login

  • Indicia AJAX Proxy

Now, visit Configuration > Indicia integration > Indicia settings on the admin toolbar and set the following options:

  • Indicia warehouse = Other

  • Warehouse URL = URL of your warehouse installation

  • Indicia website ID = ID of your website registration. See Setting up a website registration if you’ve not already done this.

  • Password and Confirm password for your website registration.

  • Further down the page, pan and zoom the map to cover the approximate area you will be recording in.

  • List of spatial or grid reference systems - tick GPS Latitude and Longitude (WGS84) and any others you feel are relevant.

Click Submit when done.
