DHIS2 Documentation for Metadata Sync and Versioning

Hi Devs

We are now beginning to write documentation for the Metadata Sync and Versioning core features.

What are the guidelines for doing this documentation? What tools/wiki are being used for documentation at DHIS. It would be good if you could point us to it.

As we understand that there are 3 manuals

  • Developer guide

  • User guide

  • Implementor guide

When we do the documentation are we targeting all these guides?

Some key aspects that we believe are documentation worthy are:

  • The new API 's (versioning and sync).

  • The new task (Metadata sync task)

  • Metadata Versioning and Metadata Sync as a concept.

  • Best practices around the Metadata versioning setup.

  • Optimization of the initial setup of new field instances given the central-field deployment strategy

  • The changes to the existing “Settings” app [which is pretty much part of setting up the Synchronization settings and the ability to create new versions by enabling versioning ]

  • The changes to the “Data Administration” app where we can now also schedule the metadata sync at the time of choice.

It would be good if you could help us get started.

Hi Vanya,

Please have a look here

http://dhis2.github.io/dhis2-docs/2.22/en/implementer/html/apa.html

which describes in a fair amount of detail how to get started with the documentation.

You can just submit a pull request through the GitHub repo.

Let us know if you need further information.

Regards,

Jason

Just some suggestions for your question on where to put what:

  • The new task (Metadata sync task)
  • Metadata Versioning and Metadata Sync as a concept.
  • Best practices around the Metadata versioning setup.
  • Optimization of the initial setup of new field instances given the central-field deployment strategy

I suggest a new chapter in the user manual called “Metadata synchronization” for these.

http://dhis2.github.io/dhis2-docs/master/en/user/html/dhis2_user_manual_en.html

  • The changes to the existing “Settings” app [which is pretty much part of setting up the Synchronization settings and the ability to create new versions by enabling versioning ]

Add to settings chapter in user guide:

http://dhis2.github.io/dhis2-docs/master/en/user/html/ch23.html

  • The changes to the “Data Administration” app where we can now also schedule the metadata sync at the time of choice.

Add to data administration chapter in user guide:

http://dhis2.github.io/dhis2-docs/master/en/user/html/ch22.html

Hi

I’m not aware of any extra steps needed, I just built it fine here locally… (mvn clean package), could be something local on your laptop? I see no complaints from our build server either
