XML Data import

Dear programmers;

I am trying to use XML data import to import data in my DHIS2 database but i do not know which variable to use in my XML file so as to track record creation date and lastupdate date. As the system does when using Dataset (the image below shows the difference of the two approaches).

Anyone with solution to this will be much appreciated.

Hi Charles,

You don’t have to include any values for those two fields - they will be filled automatically.

Dear Knut

That is the approach I used in my XML file and still I don’t get values for the field.

How can I trigger the automation in XML?

Hi Charles,

In general, it should work to just mimick an export. Below is what I got from the demo:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Hi Charles,

Hello Lars

I am using Version 2.16

I have not tested Knut’s suggestion (of including lastUpdate) yet because i am a bit far from my laptop.

Charles
