We observed performance issue while deleting data element from the system. We are using DHIS2 2.37.3. After further investigation, we identified that this has to do with validation of indicators when deleting data element git link for code. Our system has around 1000 indicators. Also there are few indicators having more than 200 data elements. On an average it is taking around 40 mins to delete the data element. Sometimes the code is erroring out due to stack overflow error. We think this issue reported here Log in - DHIS 2 JIRA might be due to same related reason.
