Storing files in the DHIS2

Hi all,

I intend to store files (pdf and jpg) in my online DHIS2 instance. I wanted to know the default directory where the value type of the data elements “File” in the DHIS2 are stored. Is it possible to find it / Report / Resources ??

How to share them with other users

I am using version 2.27

Build: 5c1378d

Every idea is welcomed

Best regard !

Hi Pepe,

DHIS store by default the file uploaded into to folder under DHIS_HOME( usually named DHIS2).

To share these file with other users I don’t advise you to share that folder directly but create an automatic copy from this folder to a secure FTP where users can access those files.

Kind regards

Djibril

Hi Pepe,

you can also configure DHIS 2 to store files on AWS S3 cloud storage. If cloud is an option and you need to a lot of storage this is usually a cheaper option. Storing files on the local server file system is the default behavior. Docs here:

regards,

Lars
