Re: Fast/bulk delete of events


Thanks a lot Alex! 

Anyhow, it would be a convenient feature for end users to do it through the DHIS2 interface as well.

Hi,The easier way is to use the api/events endpoint and query for events uids you want to delete. Once you have them, you can send http delete method via curl or nodejs or python or php,etc and loop through each to delete them via api/events/uid.

We want to quickly (in groups) delete events related to a specific program and/or to a specific org unit (or list of org units). In DHIS2, we only managed to go one by one in the event capture app.

Can anyone recommend us any other convenient and faster way to do this, or if you are aware of an app that may help us?

We have also checked if it is possible to do it through the database, but we did not find easy to locate the table where the event data are stored and it is safe to delete them without loosing references to other objects.

Thank you!
