Option failed to save

Hello community,

I am trying to add new option to the existing option set variable. But I couldn’t and received message: Option failed to save. And DHIS log is below:

DHIS version 2.34, Windows 10pro, Tomcat 9.0.37, PG-11.5
Any ideas?
Thank you

Hi Ulanbek,
I can’t be sure but a null pointer exception when trying to add an option to a set sounds like an issue with sort orders.

Could you try opening the option set in the maintenance app and under the options tab try sorting the options either manually or automatically by name or code.

After sorting try adding your option again and see if that helps.

Please let us know how it goes.

Morning @Morten_Haugen
Yes, your were right. I have done exactly what you suggested and now it works!
Thanks.
Question is why this happened?
Rgds, Ulanbek
