DHIS-2 demo portal not working

Hi all,

It seems the demo portal on DHIS2.org is not working - no data appears. Has this been abandoned? If not you should probably check the API settings and probably update the graphic with the new 2.30 graphic objects.

I think Randy is referring to the demo of DHIS 2 objects embedded in an external website, referred to and linked to as a “portal”: https://play.dhis2.org/portal/

I also have noticed that this no longer functions, and that embedding analytic objects externally seems generally less supported lately, although it continues to appear in the documentation. Perhaps these features will be enhanced as Analytics continues to be overhauled in future versions.

Best,

Sarah

Hi Sarah,
Thanks for clarifying. This is exactly the portal demo I was referring to. We would like to embed such objects in the MOH public website here in Rwanda.

Hi Randy

I am not sure who is responsible for maintaining that portal demo, but perhaps one of the reasons it has fallen into disrepair is that this is really not a good example to follow. If you look at the page source you will notice that the credentials to access the objects (admin:district) in this case are in plain view. You couldn’t really do it like this for a for a production server. There have been cases where people have slavishly followed this example and created serious vulnerabilities in some very large dhis2 implementations.

I am not sure what would be the best approach if you did want to do this. I suspect the correct thing to do would be to make use of special location blocks in the web proxy server to expose particular items (charts, maps, etc) without authentication. That of course could be a little trickier to setup and maybe explains why it hasn’t been done yet in the demo.

Regards

Bob
