We would like to start a pilot using the new Android App. Testing the current version revealed a number of bugs in the skip logic and hide/unhide of objects. When can we expect the next release of the updated Android app?

Congrats the team for your hard works. I recently downloaded the App from the play-store and tried (2.29) but it got crashed, require to restart it, not able to enter data in the few fields, program rules are not working as expected. Then I went to dhis.org site and refer android documentation but in the manual the screenshots are of the older version, not matching with the app and the manual. Looking for best and appropriate guidance. Thanking all

Hi @Sangay_Tenzin,

thanks for testing out the App. We would need some more details though to help you debug your problem. We recommend you to report your errors to Jira with details on:

  • The steps to reproduce the error.
  • Mobile device
  • Android OS version
  • DHIS2 version

Regarding documentation, please check this document it is updated and in the case some screens look different, is a design change, not a functional change.

Thanks!
Marta

Hello,

Tried connecting DHIS2 app with our server but its not taking the URL and username password.

Kindly suggest advice if anything is wrong here. Or it only connects to any specific database.

Thanks

Hey hi Pablo,

Please confirm if we can use this app with our own DHIS2 server aswell. Otherwise i dont see the use of this if we dont have the way to connect to our own database.

Thanks,

Hi @usfreak13,

you can connect the app to your DHIS2 server as long as you are using 2.29 or 2.30.
For older versions you need to use the old apps.
For 2.31, we will release a new version by the end of the week.

Which kind of error are you receiving?

Thanks,
Marta

Hi Rahul!,

You should check the server url, we have seen other cases like the one you describe.
The link can redirect you to the login screen on web yes, but that does not mean it is the “server url”. The app needs the whole path to where dhis is installed in the server.

For example:
https://play.dhis2.org/android-current/api/me
In this case, https://play.dhis2.org/android-current is the server url. But there are cases where there is an extra path in the url before /api.

Let me know if that helps you. And if you are having trouble and you can share your server url we could have a look.

Dear Pablo,

Thanks for the info. I’ve already tried various means and ways by putting different URL’s with full path and otherwise but its not connecting.

In my case its now stuck at authenticating screen and not moving a head from there.

Any way would you like to suggest for the same.

My URL is - http://180.151.244.196:8080/dhis

Please have a look and check if this is connecting in your app.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @usfreak13,

we would need testing credentials to test the log in. Would you mind sending them to @Pablo (pajuelo@quadram.mobi) and me (marta@dhis2.org).

Best,
Marta

Hi @usfreak13,

I’ve found the issue comes from the API call to:

http://180.151.244.196:8080/dhis/api/me?fields=id,code,name,displayName,created,lastUpdated,birthday,education,gender,jobTitle,surname,firstName,introduction,employer,interests,languages,email,phoneNumber,nationality,deleted,userCredentials[id,code,name,displayName,created,lastUpdated,deleted,username,userRoles[id,code,name,displayName,created,lastUpdated,deleted]]

Seems a problem with the brackets. Please check this post:

Hi,

If this is caused by the common “bracket problem” (that tomcat 8.0.35 or later does not allow square brackets unless it has been explicitly permitted via a setting in Tomcat’s “server.xml” configuration file), then the problem should appear when opening e.g. Tracker Capture in the web too… Rahul, does Tracker Capture opens normally in your browser?

Regards
Calle
