Re: [Dhis2-devs] DHIS2 2.30 IMPORT/EXPORT ISSUE


Dear Blake,

Thank you for approaching our issue.

I am afraid that the solution to the problem is not that simple. DHIS2 still doesn't recognize the Org Unit csv file, although that is a structure that has been successfully imported in previous versions. I also got the parent UID from DHIS2 directly. I have attached the csv in this email, if you want to take a look.

I also send you the screenshot from the failed import (below).

Hi Kristiyan,

DHIS2 still support this in 2.30, which you will see in the documentation. The only difference is that you no longer have to select the upload file type. DHIS2 automatically detects that it is a .csv file. Then you will be asked to choose the type of object you are creating.

So the first step, is click on upload file, select your .csv file, and import from there as usual.

All best,

Dear DHIS2 experts,

I am writing to you because I have the following issue with DHIS2 METADATA IMPORT:

I want to import (first) Organizational units and unfortunately I do not see the .csv import and object type in the IMPORT/EXPORT APP.

I see the DHIS2 2.30 guide on importing metadata has this functionalities (see below SCREENSHOT 1) that are not present in our DHIS2 instance (see below SCREENSHOT 2)

My questions, therefore is: How can I import Org Units (and other metadata) from a .csv format in DHIS2?
