Hi, @yousef.zammar,

Which Version of DHIS2 are you using?

I know you can be able to Import option set from CSV but not for the import option set group.

Best,
James.

Hi @Yousef.

I learned this during my training in Zanzibar. There is no straight forward way but there is a workaround to import option sets.

First you create a CSV file with the necessary values as shown below:

optionsetname,optionsetuid,optionsetcode,optionname,optionuid,optioncode
“MSP_Gender”,"",“os_gndr”,“Male”,"",“oGenM”
“MSP_Gender”,"",“os_gndr”,“Female”,"",“oGenF”

Then import the same file twice. What will happen is, the first time it will create the Option Set and the second time it will create the Options.

Note that the first line is not needed on the actual CSV file but I have included here for clarity of the items and their order.

* Please check the “solution” option at the bottom if this works.

Hi @yousef.zammar,

I am guessing this might be possible by adding another component to the CSV file in addition to what @MSP specified, but it is a bit out of my technical comfort zone :wink:

I am tagging @viet as he has done quite a lot of work on the import functionalities in DHIS2.

Hi

Sorry for not seeing this before: There is no support for importing option set GROUPS in CSV format in 2.30 or 2.31 (or so far in 2.32).

I’ve written a JIRA issue for it, DHIS2-6104
