Query regarding DataElements domainType

Hello All,

We were creating “data elements” with “domainType as patient” in dhis through our app.

But we just realized that “patient” is not there in “domainType drop-down” anymore.

There are only 2 values that we can select (aggregate and tracker) .

Just wanted to confirm if “tracker” is to be used in place of “patient” or there are some other changes to come.

Thanks,

Mansi Singhal

Hi Mansi,

that’s correct, tracker is a plain replacement for patient. It is part of the terminology change from patient* to tracked entity*.

In the data model you will see a change from string discriminators to enum. In the database you will see a change from:

aggregate -> AGGREGATE

patient -> TRACKER

We just did a change to the startup routines so please upgrade your local repo.

regards,

Lars
