The feature that my friends on thisemail thread try to explain I believe is very useful. It obvious that a lot of end-userson different tracker projects that I know were benefiting a lot with the namedfeature for generating some kind of LineListing report (profile) with selected attributes by all the organizationunits which are under their responsibility (User organisation unit).

Thanks Markus for the API, it worksfine for me. Though, in a quick glance it couldn't show the attributes with datatype "Date". Probably is because I am using data format ISO 8601 03-31-1981 (dd-MM-yyyy). However, the shared APIhas been useful, at least I managed to cool down the anger of my clients

Regardsto the security concern: I am100% agreed. However, I think we should trade-off because now the Tracker has varioususe-cases in every sector, it is no longer in health sector alone. Even in a Healthsometimes one would like to generate the line listing of the patients / clientsenrolled on their Districts (with other attributes, not necessary with names). Ithink we should have the option not necessary there, then during thecustomization one can activate it if want to use 

If we think for a security reasonsit is not safe having that functionality at Tracker Data entry (which I support), then we shouldimplement the same functionality on Even Report. But we may need to improve itby giving an option of giving line listing based on Attributes only (without interferethe events on given period). The big limitation with event report is justgiving the all events on the row in a given period of time. If one person has10 transactions (events) in given period of time, it will appear 10 times onthe event rows. Furthermore the person if is not assigned into any Programstage will not show up on events, which are not required if one generate theProfile report. 

I think all these are things whichneed to be considered. May be we should request these on JIRA!!

Best regards

 Hi Markus,
I think what Stanley is trying to express here, applies to all about good features that  our end-users are familiar with, and  which get disappeared from version to versions.  In the older versions, an end-user at higher Orgunit might list all TEI  recorded simply by selecting specific OU. From this list he/she can immediately opt to list all, active enrollment, completed , etc depending on what is needed for further analysis without passing through Event reports app. 

We have received the same complaints from program using Tracker based  systems. Because this way of listing TEI is quick  and i would advocate if you can explore the possibility of activating again.
On the other hand, i need to hear from the community regarding  DHIS 2.29  if the Event report  app is generating tables with cases based data captured after upgrading. My tracker system is misbehaving after upgrading to 2.29, the Event reports app is no aggregating cases reported after upgrade while the scheduled  analytics seems to run correctly . Has it reported or someone has hint?

Hi Markus,
I have tried wgoing directly to the API but i keep getting this errorWhat could be the problem.I am using version 2.29

Hey Stanley,thanks for the feedback.
You can go directly to the API and get the CSV:https://play.dhis2.org/2.28/api/28/trackedEntityInstances/query.csv?ou=ImspTQPwCqd&ouMode=DESCENDANTS&program=WSGAb5XwJ3Y
- ou would be the UID of your top/root organization unit. - program would be the uid of the program you want to download TEIs for.
You can perhaps create a "external resource" and put this link on a dashboard for use of your end users.
Let me know if this helps :)

Hey Markus,
This makes alot of sense though.
However,my issue is when i want to download the entire list of TEI's into an excel or CV for other analysis outside DHIS2,i can not do so.Initially i would simply List All and download the list of TEI's.
If there is a way i can do that,then thats fine.
Thank you

Hey Stanley,You are right - the "List all" button is no longer there in the reworked UI of 2.29. We are actively working on making the Tracker data more secure, and the use case for the list all function was perhaps not understood properly by us when we designed 2.29. Can you let us know a bit about your use case? Will the end user click the button to list all TEIs in the entire system and start paging through the list?
Best regards,Markus

Hi Marta,
Actually when i select an OU i am able to see the TEI's but to display all TEI's across all OU's like we used to in versions 2.28 below where we could select 'List All' and all TEI's could be displayed,i dont see it in 2.29.
Any ideas

Hi Stanley,
not seeing yout TEI's could be caused by the "Display front page list" parameter not being marked. It is in the program details step when you create or edit your program.

With other versions of DHIS2,i would simply click on List All and all TEI regardless of OU registered from,they would all appear and i would download and review i may.
How can i do this in 2.29?
