Deletion of DataElements or Indicators that are used in Favourites

Hi,

I am able to successfully delete a Data Set and all corresponding DataElements and Indicators and corresponding data via the Web API. However when I then go and attempt to load a Favourite that was created referencing elements that are now deleted, I get the error

Code 409

Status: Conflict

Dimension dx is present in query without any valid dimension options

(see attached screenshot)

This doesn’t give the user any idea that the favourite is no longer valid because the underlying elements have been deleted. In order for this functionality to make sense to the user I want to do one of the following:

  1. Prior to deleting the Data Set and related objects, query for all favourites that use any items to be deleted and list them and allow the user the option to have them programatically deleted.
  2. Is it possible to query for favourites by their corresponding data elements and indicators via the API?
  3. Is it possible to delete a favourite via the API?
  4. If #1 above is not possible, is it possible to show a more meaningful message to the user that lets them know why a favourite cannot be loaded?
    I am using version:

2.25

Hi Lorill

Would you mind filing an issue in Jira for this?

Hi Morten,

Can I assume then that querying for and deleting favourites via the API is not possible right now?

I created three different JIRAs for this:

https://jira.dhis2.org/browse/DHIS2-1174 - Show more meaningful message to user when a favourite cannot be loaded due to missing data elements

https://jira.dhis2.org/browse/DHIS2-1175 - Add ability to query for Favourites by their corresponding data elements and indicators via the API

https://jira.dhis2.org/browse/DHIS2-1176 - Add ability to delete Favourites via the API

What is your process for reviewing and prioritizing JIRA issues? Just wondering when I would know if and when these issues would be developed, and for which version(s)?

Thanks,

Lorill

Hi Lorill

Deleting favorites should definitely be possible, but they are some complications around it (if they are connected to dashboard items etc), its something we should look more closely into I’m sure.

The process of JIRA issues is that when you report them, they are automatically assigned to the person responsible for that module, that person will then look at the issue (and re-assign to a different person if necessary)
