Re: [Dhis2-devs] Authorities for dragging and droping Dashboard Items


Dear all, 

We have already reported similar. Actually in our case, if the people has only "See Dashboard" but does not have the other visualization Apps, they see the dashboards with ghost widget (no chart, table or maps). We have to give them access to all the other Apps, which was not our primary intention, and we don't see the rationale behind this neither.

Hi Eric

This is a bug we are aware of, and it has been fixed in master (what will be 2.30). I'm not sure if it has been backported yet.

Dear developers,

I have observed in our system that some users weren't able to Drag/Arrange/redistribute dashboardItems from a Dashboard. After testing it in DHIS2 Demo (at least tested for version 28) I have observed that users must have the following authorities: 

 See Data Visualizer app 

 See Event Reports app 

 See Dashboard Classic 

 See Event Visualizer app 

 See Pivot Table app 

Basically, they must have ALL related analysis app authorities. Is there any rationality behind restricting it to that level? I mean, we have to allow users seeing apps they might not use (for example program related analytic apps) for dragging objects that might not be related to that applications (Aggregated Tables). Am I missing something? Is this a bug?
