Inputs for new feature: Stopping sync on DHIS version difference between Central and field instance


Hello  Lars and Morten

We are considering adding another feature to the metadata sync and

The idea is to stop sync if the Remote server (Central instance) and the
field instance are on different DHIS2 versions. This is important as
metadata created on one version of DHIS2 might not be compatible with
another version of DHIS2. This also ensures that instances tied up in this
ecosystem remain on the same DHIS2 version.

We would like to make this change from the following standpoint:

- Synchronization API   /api/metadata/sync  : spitting out relevant http
status code and message.

- Metadata synchronization task: The task will send out an email
notification to the admin telling the reason of abort of sync.

Please let us know how you feel about this feature (read restriction :) ).

We will be happy to pick it up as you give us a good to go!

With Regards
