Meta data import

Hi Devs,
Dhis2 currently supports import of the following object types:-

    1.  Data elements

2· Data element groups

      3·   Category options

      4 · Category option groups

      5.·  Organisation units

      6·   Organisation unit groups

      7·  Validation rules

      8.  Option sets

Are there plans to include the following object types in future?

a) Indicators and indicator groups

b) Categories and Category Combinations

c) Indicators and Indicator groups

d) Users

e) Tracked entity Instance

f) Enrollments

g) Events

I have relied on developing scripts to import the above missing objects such as users via the API, is there an app that already does this? This affects initial project configs where the above object types are many and any manual upload is bound to take a lot of time.

Hi

Which version of DHIS 2 are you on? all object types should be supported for JSON/XML.

Hi Morten,
I am using version 2.22, but will upgrade soon. Are there plans to support CSV import ? I have often used the api to send in a json payload for these objects is the syntax for these objects the same as the one sent via the api ?

Dear David,

Still the same list in 2.25 see attached for CSV metadata import, with only addition of translation. I think to keep it simple as DHIS2 should be, more CSV import formats should be added.

Hi Prosper,
Thanks for your feedback. Most users tend to do the configs in excel and convert into CSV for import.Most pple have been forced to develop some scripts for some of the missing object types to upload the configs via the api using either JSON/XML. Adding some of the missing object types will make configuration work more user friendly and less time consuming.

Hi,

David, I agree - and the most obvious candidate is OrgUnitGroupMEMBERS. Adding OrgUnitGroups is usually easy even if you do it manually via the UI, because there are maybe 20-30-40 of them. But if you have a hierarchy with let us say 10,000 orgunits, and each is a member of 4-5 groups, then you need to set up 40-50,000 records…

I don’t understand why e.g. OrgUnitgroupMember export/import to CSV is not there already, actually - it is a very simple format with only two fields.

regards
Calle
