Dhis2 administration

Hi team.
Is there a web link for dhis2 where i can have full access and user rights to all the dhis2 apps including maintenance just to customize and play around with data . The one for sierra leon DHIS 2 Demo - Sierra Leone has limited user rights and apps like mainrenance are not allowed to users

@Eris_Vinn, welcome to the community! :tada::tada:

Have you checked out the developer’s portal? There is a guide there that will take you step by step into how to install a local instance which is used by app developers but you can use it to test all the apps that you want! (Prerequisites and initial setup | DHIS2 Developer Portal)

Please let us know if you need any further support, and do feel free to share your experiences here! :+1::+1:

Hi @Eris_Vinn .

You can login into the play servers with the admin / district account that has pretty much all the rights and should allow you doing pretty much everything. If you still need to acquire higher permissions you can always modify the role assigned (superuser) and give the ALL authority to obtain them all.

Two main considerations:

  1. Having authority ALL is not recommended as all the permissions are bypassed. So you might think the system doesn’t behave properly when it actually does (i.e. you have no permissions assigned to a dataset and you expect no user to see it. However, the superuser with ALL would still be able to access it).
  2. Play servers are reset every night so in case you want to keep things longer than that your best option is probably installing a local instance as @Gassim was suggesting.


Thanks. now i understand
