CSV-Import of Category Options

Dear all,

category options can take a short name (in addition to name and code) in the
Maintenance GUI.

However, the csv-format description in the developers manual (1.11.6. Other
objects) only gives the option to import name and code, but not the short name.
Is that a problem of the manual, or do I have to specify the short names
manually after importing the options? (are the short names used anywhere,
anyway?)

Regards,

Uwe

Hi Uwe,

right. I have made a fix now in trunk and 2.23 that enables import of short names for the following objects:

Category option, data element group, organisation unit group, category option group.

regards,

Lars

Sounds good, thank you! What would be the CSV-format? Just another column at
the end?

Are the ShortNames being used anywhere in the guy / reports / etc... ?

Yes, after code. Updated docs now.

Yes e.g. in analytics apps.

I tried import for category options and that seems to work. However - I can't
seem to find any use of the shortnames in pivot or visualiser - at least for
category options. Would be useful, though.

Have a nice evening,

Uwe

You can set “Display property to use in analytics” under profile > user settings to control rendering of meta-data in the left side panel.

Got it, that's much better. Would it be a big thing to extend the selection to codes as well, and to offer shortnames in the download menue (currently I can only see ID, Name and Code)?

Best regards, Uwe
