UID issues when loading dataentry module or user management

Dear All,

You could have noted after upgrading DHIS2 from lower version to 2.24 or so, the organisationunits may not load when opening data entry module or user managerment so you can’t attach any user to any orgunit.

We noted that the issue is brought about by a Token Error on uid. All the orgunits with uid starting with a number will cause this to fail in dhis2 2.24 or so. To resolve, we managed to write an SQL query to update the uids as below.

UPDATE organisationunit SET uid = (

CASE

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '0'

	THEN 'o' || substring(uid FROM 2)

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '1'

	THEN 'a' || substring(uid FROM 2)

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '2'

	THEN 'b' || substring(uid FROM 2)

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '3'

	THEN 'c' || substring(uid FROM 2)

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '4'

	THEN 'd' || substring(uid FROM 2)

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '5'

	THEN 'e' || substring(uid FROM 2)

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '6'

	THEN 'f' || substring(uid FROM 2)

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '7'

	THEN 'g' || substring(uid FROM 2)

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '8'

	THEN 'h' || substring(uid FROM 2)

WHEN (substring(uid FROM 1 FOR 1)) = '9'

	THEN 'i' || substring(uid FROM 2)

ELSE

uid

END

)

WHERE uid ~ ‘^[0-9]’;

Replacing the starting number with a letter random.

Hope this helps

You can do anything, but not everything.

This was an issue in old versions. You need to replace all uids that begin with a number.

Yes Alex.

I managed to do that using the PSQL query above. Thought some people could be having the same problem and running that query can sort them out as fast as possible.
