Hi @Panchal,

Kindly Check out on the Developer guide; 2.3. Installing Apps into DHIS2 and some info from @Stian on Installing an app on DHIS2.

Let me know if this helps.

Hi james,
The app doesn’t available on app store. It is on github.

Well noted @Panchal;
You can try following instructions from Installing DHIS2 Apps and uploading the zip file into the App Manager (213.3 KB)

Dear @jomutsani,

Do you have screenshot of uploading flow. The reason is that, I have selected; however, it didn’t work.

Hi, It needs to be compiled. After compiling there will be manifest file.

Hi Parveen,

this indicates that the manifest.webapp file is missing or misplaced. The manifest file should be placed in the root of the archive (Zip file).

A common error is to create the Zip archive off an outer directory. You should create the Zip archive so that the root directory of the app (the one containing the manifest file) is the root of the archive.

Example: Have a folder structure similar to this:


Create the Zip archive with this level as the archive root.
