DHIS2 attribute category combination shows no dropdown list options

Hi everyone,

I created a attribute category combination in the DHIS2, But for some reason when I choose the attribute category combination as part of my Dataset form, I can’t see the list of category options in the dropdownlist (Partners list).

Why can’t I see the list? I’m sure that I followed the instruction correctly.

Hi, everyone.

I am facing the same problem. Even on the Sierra leone Demo, the problem persists. The image below illustrates it.

I have updated the category combination in the administration app.

Hi @fernando and @ferdinandmussavene,

Which DHIS2 version are you using?

Can I also ask whether all the relevant metadata has been shared with the user who is entering the data in the dataset form?


Iam using DHIS 2 Version 2.33.1. The user has administrative privileges. The options do not appear when wanting to test if the form works correctly or not.

Just to confirm. The user trying to do this is a superuser? Or what is the sharing settings for the category combo?

It works well in 2.33dev, but in that program, the category combo has public view/edit.

Can you give specific steps to reproduce?

Hi @Karoline

The problem is now solved.

Thank you.

Happy to hear that! Can you let us know the solution, for future community members that might face the same issue?


Hi @Karoline,

The attribute combos appeared just after removing start date from category options. Not still sure if setting a start date was really the problem.
