Re: [Dhis2-devs] Inherit function for Tracked Entity Attributes


I understand this, but what does it mean and how does it work?

I imagine that if I have a household registered in a program with a HH code marked as inherit and then I register a member who also has a HH code in their profile, DHIS2 will be able to pick the code from the Household and assign it to my member, if I tell it to do so. In other words, the member will inherit the code of the household, if the two are related.
However, I tested this and nothing changed at registration of an HH member. I simply did not see how the code inherit function works.

Any thoughts?

Ticking the inherit checkbox will make an attribute - in your case "house hold code" - inheritable.

Can someone explain how the inherit function of Tracked Entity Attribute in v. 2.27 works?
Here’s what the user manual says on the topic:
“Select Inherit to registry a new entity for relationship with an available entity, all inherit entity attribute values of the entity will be pre-filled in the registration form.”

In short, this is what I am trying to do. In one tracker program, I am registering Households, which have a household code generated by DHIS2. In another program, I am registering household members as beneficiaries, which also need to have the household code in their profile. How do I make Household code at beneficiary registration to be inherited from the previously registered Households?

Thanks you in advance!
