Re: [Dhis2-devs] Defining Compulsory Data Element Unsuccessfull


Hello Raminosoa,

The issue is because the Data Element has already been used for data entry
and changing the property of the DE at this time will bring about some

The solution is to create another DE with the compulsory attribute and
remove the previous one from the Dataset.
But you might need to trade with the data that was previously entered using
the DE.

Dear Users,

I would like to report the following issue when changing some data elements
to be compulsory for the data entry. This DE was already used for a
dataset. Please find attached 2 screenshots during the data compulsory
edition and the associated unsuccessful message. I am wondering if this is
due to the fact that there is already some existing empty values in the
data element, or is this issue linked with other consideration?

I am using DHIS2 2.25.
