As per the decision of the COVID-19 Squad to make the DHIS2 connector module functioning again, I’ve identified some issues with the core functionalities and fixed them with the following PR:
@k.joseph Could you please review and merge it?
Meanwhile, we created a new Jira project for this module,
Please Feel free to contribute ideas and PRs!

I had raised a question on which DHIS2 connector to focus on, whether to keep pushing this one or build upon the Jembi one which has actual production usage but did not hear back
@grace What was the final decision on that?
@ssmusoke This is referring to the the module that Jembi used to use. Note that, as far as we’ve been able to determine, Jembi no longer uses it, so it’s a bit rusty, but @jayasanka is doing great work to get it into shape.
So now the official position is to use the OpenMRS DHIS2 connector not the Jembi one
@ssmusoke They are identical. Jembi initially developed it, but then migrated the module to the OpenMRS repo. Latest commit to Jembi; latest commit to OpenMRS. We’re simply doing development under the OpenMRS repository because it’s easier permission-wise.
@ibacher Thanks for the clarification, that is awesome!!
