Import data from Tracker Capture App db to server 2.28


(Vikwato Kamanga) #1

Hi. I’m trying to import from the Android tracker capture db that was exported from the app under settings. The server is version 2.28. Any tips?

Hi @vikwato,
Data in the android app should automatically sync with the server if you enable periodic synchronization within the settings of the app.
Would you please provide more details on what you mean “import from the Android tracker capture db that was exported from the app under settings.” I have checked a number at least 2 android tracker capture apps and I cannot seem to find this feature.

Emma.

Please see the option to export the database from the screenshot below:

Hi @vikwato, @Emma_Kassy,

that export database is only available in the old apps. To be honest I am not aware of the format in which data is exported and there is no functionality to import it in the app.

As far as I know is for developers to be able to see the data and debug potential problems.

The best (and easiest and almost only) way to import data from an app in a server is to actually sync the app.

Is this not an option for you @vikwato ?
