Cloning a dataset

Hi all,

It seems the cloning of datasets are not there although it is in the 2.25 manual here https://ci.dhis2.org/docs/2.25/en/user/html/manage_data_sets.html

Stipulating under 10.3.5 as follows:

10.3.5. Clone data sets

Cloning a data set can save time when you create many similar data sets.

  1. Open the Maintenance app and click Data set > Data set.

  2. In the list, find the data set you want to clone.

  3. Click the options menu and select Clone.

  4. Modify the options you want.

  5. Click Save.

However all datasets on SL demo does not provide the option to clone as displayed in this screenshot. Is it a bug in DHIS2 that the clone function is not displayed or is the manual outdated?

Cloning of datasets was removed in 2.24, but it seems we forgot to update the documentation.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Hi Nicolay,

Is there a reason why it was decided to remove the cloning of datasets? It is a useful feature now that one is able to create a duplicate dataset and use the override data elements’ category combinations in the duplicated dataset. It is obviously possible to re-create the dataset manually but quite tedious with a large dataset. Was there any issues with duplication of datasets that prompted the removal of the cloning feature or can it be brought back?

This was removed because cloning datasets is more complicated than other types of objects, since it also requires handling related objects such as custom forms and sections. It would of course be possible to implement it - as always it’s a question of priorities.

Feel free to create an issue in JIRA.
