DHIS version 2.7 is released

Hi all,

DHIS version 2.7 is released. The improvements this time are: (demo
login is admin/district)

1) Translation of database content: Most database content, including
data elements, indicators, validation rules, groups and group sets can
now be translated to any language. Each user can independently decide
what language to use in the system. To translate an object click on
the blue translation icon next to the object in the various lists.
Later in the settings module under general user settings you can set
your preferred language.

This functionality is useful for countries with more than one
widespread language or when English is needed as a second language.
This functionality has already been field tested in Tanzania with
Swahili and English.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-maintenance-datadictionary/dataElement.action

2) Chart options in data visualizer module: Support for several
options for chart including i) Domain and range axis labels for
displaying the units of measure of the chart ii) Target line for
displaying the desired target value iii) Trend line for displaying the
trend of the chart data iv) Hide legend and title to make more space
for the chart itself v) Dynamic inclusion of the organisation unit of
the currently logged in user on order to make charts more reusable in
the dashboard. The user interface for the chart options can be found
in the bottom left corner.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-visualizer/app/index.html?uid=nwqNUFG9Vky

3) Option sets: Support for pre-defined sets of options for name-based
data. You can define any kind of options, for instance an option set
called "Delivery type" where "Normal", "Breach", "Caesarian" and
"Assisted" would be the options. This option set can later be
associated with any number of data elements. When doing data entry in
name-based records module those elements will then appear in the form
as drop-down lists with auto-completion support.

The user interface for defining option sets are found in data
administration module. Option sets can be associated with data
elements in the add / update data element interface. Int the demo
below select any facility and then the "Delivery returns" program:

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-caseentry/anonymousRegistration.action

4) Data locking: New and improved solution for locking of data entry
forms. With the new solution you define a number of expiry days for
each data set which is relative to the end date of the data entry
period. So when the number of expiry days has passed after the end
date of a period, that period will be locked for further data entry.
You can cater for special situations where data entry should be
allowed despite the automatic locking through the lock exception user
interface in data administration module.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-maintenance-dataadmin/lockException.action

5) Improved messaging: i) Paging - all messages can now be browsed
page by page ii) Follow up - messages can be marked for later
follow-up by clicking on the familiar star next to it iii) Faster
navigation - buttons for marking a message as unread, remove it and go
back are included also at the bottom of the read message screen.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-dashboard-integration/message.action

6) Full data mart export: A new user interface in reports module for
easily doing full data mart exports. You can select the period types
and start- and end-date for which periods to include in the export.
Full export implies that all organisation units, data elements and
indicators are included in the export process. This means that you
don't have to worry about getting invalid data marts as a result of
e.g. not including all organisation unit levels. This interface
provides you with continuous feedback so that you can easily track
progress of the process.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-reporting/displayDataMartForm.action

You download the new version from here as WAR file or Live package:

Documentation and Javadocs can be found here:

In general its best to do this in increments if possible - upgarding
from 2.3 to 2.7 might well cause a few problems. But if you have a
2.6 database, running the 2.7 war against it should take care of the
necessary updates. As always, take a backup first :slight_smile:

Lars tells me this is not necessarily true and I think he is right.
All of the 'legacy' sql upgrade stuff should be present in the
dhis.war to upgrade from previous versions so you should indeed be
able to upgrade from 2.x to 2.7 by just deploying the latest war. And
given you will have taken a db backup first there is no real risk in
trying anyway.

I'm creating a user role called Helpdesk in DHIS 2.6 and their role is simply to add accounts and reset user passwords.

I've assigned them every function with user in it (Add, list, delete) users, user groups, user roles.

When I create a user and assign them to this role at the national level, they are able to login and navigate to the user maintenance module and they can create users, but they cannot see the list of users if they want to reset passwords.

Is this a bug or by design?

Hi Randy,

I am afraid it is by design :wink: The reasoning behind this is that we
are encouraging a distributed management of users.

The rule is that a user can only see another user in the user list if he

- has all of the authorities of that user (inherited through the user roles)
- is at a level above or at the same org unit in the org unit hierarchy

This way we are able to let e.g. district users create, update and
otherwise manage facility users. In a large country this is an
effective way of properly managing users as we have seen in Kenya. If
users could create other users with authorities they don't have
themselves they could effectively shortcut the whole authorization
setup.

The downside is obviously that it becomes hard to create such a
national help-desk team you describe. I guess the only solution at the
moment is to give the help desk user role all the authorities of which
they should be able to grant others.

regards, Lars

From a security perspective you don't really have anything to loose.

Even if you constrained those helpdesk users they could in any case
create new users for themselves with any authority they would like.

Upgrading from 2.6 which had data elements in hindi has converted all of those data elements to ?? (question marks)

Is this a problem in which UTF-8 characters were represented in earlier versions and now it has been fixed or some other problem??

The database was using charset UTF-8 and the collation that was able to work with multiple languages.

Anyway to fix the ?? back to the language text back again??

Hi all,

DHIS version 2.7 is released. The improvements this time are: (demo

login is admin/district)

  1. Translation of database content: Most database content, including

data elements, indicators, validation rules, groups and group sets can

now be translated to any language. Each user can independently decide

what language to use in the system. To translate an object click on

the blue translation icon next to the object in the various lists.

Later in the settings module under general user settings you can set

your preferred language.

This functionality is useful for countries with more than one

widespread language or when English is needed as a second language.

This functionality has already been field tested in Tanzania with

Swahili and English.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-maintenance-datadictionary/dataElement.action

  1. Chart options in data visualizer module: Support for several

options for chart including i) Domain and range axis labels for

displaying the units of measure of the chart ii) Target line for

displaying the desired target value iii) Trend line for displaying the

trend of the chart data iv) Hide legend and title to make more space

for the chart itself v) Dynamic inclusion of the organisation unit of

the currently logged in user on order to make charts more reusable in

the dashboard. The user interface for the chart options can be found

in the bottom left corner.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-visualizer/app/index.html?uid=nwqNUFG9Vky

  1. Option sets: Support for pre-defined sets of options for name-based

data. You can define any kind of options, for instance an option set

called “Delivery type” where “Normal”, “Breach”, “Caesarian” and

“Assisted” would be the options. This option set can later be

associated with any number of data elements. When doing data entry in

name-based records module those elements will then appear in the form

as drop-down lists with auto-completion support.

The user interface for defining option sets are found in data

administration module. Option sets can be associated with data

elements in the add / update data element interface. Int the demo

below select any facility and then the “Delivery returns” program:

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-caseentry/anonymousRegistration.action

  1. Data locking: New and improved solution for locking of data entry

forms. With the new solution you define a number of expiry days for

each data set which is relative to the end date of the data entry

period. So when the number of expiry days has passed after the end

date of a period, that period will be locked for further data entry.

You can cater for special situations where data entry should be

allowed despite the automatic locking through the lock exception user

interface in data administration module.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-maintenance-dataadmin/lockException.action

  1. Improved messaging: i) Paging - all messages can now be browsed

page by page ii) Follow up - messages can be marked for later

follow-up by clicking on the familiar star next to it iii) Faster

navigation - buttons for marking a message as unread, remove it and go

back are included also at the bottom of the read message screen.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-dashboard-integration/message.action

  1. Full data mart export: A new user interface in reports module for

easily doing full data mart exports. You can select the period types

and start- and end-date for which periods to include in the export.

Full export implies that all organisation units, data elements and

indicators are included in the export process. This means that you

don’t have to worry about getting invalid data marts as a result of

e.g. not including all organisation unit levels. This interface

provides you with continuous feedback so that you can easily track

progress of the process.

http://apps.dhis2.org/demo/dhis-web-reporting/displayDataMartForm.action

You download the new version from here as WAR file or Live package:

Hi Lars,

Good afternoon. Great work with dhis2 2.7. I however have a suggestion on the data entry screen in the dhis2. This was an issue which came up during one of our training sessions. I think if we could include a button that could clear/delete the contents on a given data set when we recall it from the system using the incomplete button. At present one has to physically delete all the entries, one at a time in a situation where one makes the mistake of doing entries in the wrong data set. Hoping to hear from you soon.

Hi Denis,

thanks for your comments. I think this kind of function needs to be
carefully considered as it introduces a bit of risk of users
unintentionally removing a lot of data :wink:
