API - Post Event - Program Rule not triggered

Hi All,

I’m hoping that you can help me out. I am using the API (/29/) to push a Program Event into the DHIS2. This program also has a “program rule” set on it that adds two of the variables together and sets the result to a third value. I’ve notice that this program rule is not run until I actually visit the page and choose to edit that record.

Does anyone happen to know if there is any way that I can remotely trigger the program rule to run via the API?

Thanks,

Matt

Matt,

Until very recently, all program rules were run on the client side. Support for server-side program rules have been added recently, but I believe only in trunk (2.30 - initial beta to be released tomorrow). Using that, I believe it will be possible to trigger that assign rule via the api

Thanks, Calle and Markus!

I will keep an eye on upcoming releases for expanded Program Rule functionality.

I didn’t even consider the possibility that the rule would be run at analytics time. I do some more testing around that. Worst-case, I can include some basic logic in my script that’s pushing data into the system.

Calle - You are right that the program rules now run on the server, but the only program rule action type they perform in 2.30 is “Send message” and “Schedule message”. The other action types like assign will be added on the server side in later releases.

Matt - can you make a program indicator for the same expression? This would not store the value in a data element, but this calculation would run at the time of creating the pivot/report in analytics.

Hi,

Markus - thanks for the clarification (clearly I did not pay enough attention the other day, must be caffein-deficiency…)

Matt,

IMHO, if you NEED to store the derived value, you could consider running a small database-side script at regular intervals (depending on how often you push events through the API) that mimicks the client-side ASSIGN program rule. Again depending on your database size etc, it might only take a second or three to run such a script - which means you could consider running it very frequently. OR you might find a way of using a trigger that fires immediately after the API has inserted the event (note: I have not used that myself for this purpose, so not sure)

Regards

Calle
