I am in Zimbabwe and we are working on setting up a linkage from their HRIS, zHRIS, to DHIS2 via SDMX-HD as a cross-sectional data set. I am following the same pattern as we have done for Kenya, Zanzibar, and Sierra Leone. However, I have always worked on the HRIS side of things and this time around I need some direction/helpful hints on the DHIS side.
As a first step, we are trying to import in DHIS2 the data (# health workers, facility, post)
So far, we have generated the necessary DSD.xml and KF_POST_FACILITY.xsd files and I believe the actual import process will should follow this outline:
How can one associate the DSD and KF_POST_FACILITY.xsd to this process so it can be validated.
Next, I want to know how to properly get the posts properly loaded into DHIS. These are not (at least for now) going to be further disaggregated by things like gender. Looking at some previous examples I think that I should be generating a dxf file for this. Something along the lines of the snippet below. Is this headed in the right direction?
Assuming so, I want the categoryCombo to be “default”, but it seems that the id is different on each system. I assume that I would I need to look it up on the target DHIS system first, or is there some other way?
The id’s for the post dataElements are coming from the zHRIS, e.g. 123456 As I can’t guarantee that there won’t be collision with ids for existing dataElement ids, can I put a prefix on the id, e.g. HRIS123456? Is there some other way I can avoid collision?
I have omitted the s in the snippet below. Is this OK?
P.S. sorry if this message is a repeat
