Merge and Deleting Facilities

Dear All,
On previous DHIS2 version we were using merge for duplicate sites but
on version 2.22 i can't find merge. Please can someone help me?

Also, after merging i will like to remove the duplicate facility, what
are the procedures to remove or delete a facility.

Thanks in advance for your help

Hi Gerald,
This has been raised a few times on the list already. There were some serious flaws with that functionality, and it was removed and has yet to be put back in place.

In the meantime, you can try this

https://github.com/dhis2/dhis2-utils/blob/master/resources/sql/merge_orgunits.sql

and call it directly from the database with

SELECT * FROM merge_organisationunits(‘SOURCE’, ‘DESTINATION’, ‘STRATEGY’);

where

SOURCE = the source orgunit UID

DESTINATION = the destination orgunit UID

STRATEGY= one of SUM,MAX,MIN,AVG,LAST,FIRST

each of those paramaters should be encased with single-quotes.

It goes without saying, this should be thoroughly tested on your non-production system before attempting it on your production machine, as it is a destructive function (meaning things get permanently deleted).

Regards,

Jason

They are deleted when you perform the merge by that function.

Hi Guy,

Well, not really sure you can- This functionality has been removed from the core, so this SQL script is only a work around until it gets back in.

Jason

Dear @Jason Pickering This is wonderful, however, I think it will require a video tutorial to make it simple

@Waheed1994 , thank you for your post. This topic is from 2016 so there has been many changes since.You’re able to use import/export app to perform these tasks. Thank you! (:

Update: I thought it would work! Thank you for the correction @jason. :+1:

@Waheed1994 it might be a good idea to create a feature request to see if it’s possible to bring a better implementation of this. Would you like to create it on jira.dhis2.org? Thank you!
