Re: DHIS EventReport Plugin


Hi Jan

We are working with the eventchart plugin and want to understand the

- When we specify the "startDate" and "endDate" config params and on the
favorite the relative period is "last 6 months", then we are always getting
the chart rendered with time axis between March and August. The data lying
between these months and also satisfying the 'startDate' and 'endDate'
 criterion gets displayed.
Is this is expected? Does modifying the startDate and endDate not modify
the period axis?

Although the analytics API is honoring the start and end dates properly.
The data that we get from the API call has all the data between the
specified start and end dates. It's the plugin which is not displaying the
data as returned by the API. But displays only between the configured
periodicity of the favorite.

Any help would be much appreciated.
