Could you please advise how to perform bulk import updated list of orgunits from an existing Master Facility List stored in csv format (i.e. how to update/replace existing database’s orgunits with a new list of HFs)?
I also should ask you is the CSV exported from a previous DHIS2 instance? It’s always recommended to use the import/export with the same DHIS2 instance; for instance, if you want to import into 2.36 from 2.33 it’s advised to upgrade the 2.33 instance and then use the import/export.
Thanks a million dear @Gassim . . This is really highly appreciated. By the way, I have just followed the steps as per the shared documentation (I have exported the orgunit metadata and updated the HFs names and ShortNames then tried to re-import the same metadata file. However, the updated metadata failed to be imported and the following error message appears:
Please advise what else needs to be configured.
It looks like the exported CSV has different parameters than the expected ones in the CSV import. I suggest that you use the info from the export file but change the headers according to the documentation (OU CSV).
Here is an example:
The “path” will help you to assign the “Parent” parameter, everything else you’ll just need to copy and paste.
Let us know if this solves the issue.
