Facing issues creating programs using /metadata api

Hello,

We created “Program” using “/metadata” api.

Problem we faced: On “Event Capture Screen”, when we try to create new event, we get error : "No active event exists for single event no registration program"

When we tried looking into issue, it seems that When we create a program from dhis screen(without using api), another object called “programInstance” is created for a program.

But that never happens when we use “/metadata” api to create program.

We tried looking into “/programs” api to create a program so that it takes care of creating “programInstance” object for the program. But it seems there is no such api.

Just want to confirm ‘if you are planning to write that api’ or ‘do you want us to write the same’.

Thanks,

Hi

Yes, this should be considered a bug. It’s a bit weird, but when you create a new non-registration program, it actually enrolls a “hidden” tracked entity instance to that program, so just creating a new program meta-data is not enough to start doing data-entry. For registration program, it should be ok, you just enroll a tracked entity instance into it.

I will try and fix it before release, it will need a bit of special handlng for non-registration programs.

Hi guys

Could you please try again with rev 15953, it should create the programinstance now when you use the /api/programs endpoint. If you have time to try it out, please do.

We are looking into doing a more proper fix for this that will also work on /api/metadata, but for now, please use /api/programs.

Hello Morten,

We had a look into /api/programs api. It seems it is just creating ‘ProgramInstance’ and not a ‘Program’ .

Does this mean that We need to create a program using ‘/api/metadata’ api and then create the associated programInstance object using ‘/api/programs’ api?

We tried creating Program using ‘/api/metadata’ api. It created successfully.

We tried creating programInstance using ‘/api/programs’ api. It failed.

**Input: **

{

“kind”: “SINGLE_EVENT_WITHOUT_REGISTRATION”,

“name”: “Program1”,

“userRoles”: [{

“id”: “someId”,

“name”: “someRole”

}],

“dateOfIncidentDescription”: “Incident Date”,

“version”: 1,

“organisationUnits”: [{

“id”: “orgUnit1”,

“name”: “MSF”

}],

“singleEvent”: true,

“type”: 3,

“id”: “prg1”,

“description”: “Program 1”

}

Error:

500 Not-null property references a transient value - transient instance must be saved before current operation: org.hisp.dhis.program.ProgramInstance.program -> org.hisp.dhis.program.Program

Also, we just noticed , ‘/api/programs’ api takes single program whereas ‘api/metadata’ api can take a json containing multiple programs. Can the same be done for new api(/api/programs) ?

Hi,

If you are using /api/programs and sending one new program (POST), it should have a post create task that will also create the program instance. As I said in the email, this will not work for /api/metadata, this is not fixed yet. Did you try this? this is not working?

Other than for importing bulk meta-data, do you have a usecase for creating multiple programs at the same time? is that common for you? I think I would prefer keeping the /api/type endpoints simple, and support collections etc in /api/metadata, we are looking into supporting these kinds of hooks there also, it should be there before the release next week.
