Import/Export data between similar but distinct systems


Hello DHIS2 community,
We need to make frequent import/export between two different DHIS2 systems.
While they are similar and the format "fits", we know some differences,

- The org units concerned exist on both sides but with different ids
- Same for the data elements
- In some situation, the export value may be an indicator, to be imported
in a data element

I can imagine making the export in CSV, then having a "matching sheet" in
XLS with the link between OU in the source system and OU in the destination

Is someone doing those kind of operations? What's your typical flow/way of
I think I remember Lars presenting some feature helping with this on one of
the last DHIS2 releases, but I'm not sure.
