Import/Export App Does Not Update Dashboard Items Correctly

Hello,

We are using the Import/Export app to update dashboards in dhis2 v2.33.5.

We noticed that when importing dashboard metadata, the dashboard items are updated with the additional data elements/indicators, but the data elements/indicators meant to be removed are not.

For example, the pivot table we are updating begins with indicators A, B and C. The dashboard metadata should update this table to display indicators A, B and X. However, after importing the dashboard metadata, this pivot table displays indicators A, B, C, and X.

In the Import/Export app we used the ‘Import Strategy’ ‘New and Update.’

Has anyone had this experience before? Is this expected behavior?

Thanks,
Lauren Fregosi
