Hi all, in 2.29 we introduced a significant change in the access control solution in DHIS 2.
In essence, two new levels within the sharing solution were introduced: *Can capture data* and *Can view data*. These levels applies to capturing data/events and viewing data/events in analytics, and complements the two existing levels so that we now have: Metadata -- 1. Can edit and view metadata 2. Can view metadata Data/events -- 3. Can capture and view data 4. Can view data This means that you can now control who can capture data for data sets, programs and program stages through the sharing solution. Previous to 2.29 this was done through user roles, where data sets and programs were associated with user roles. You can also control who can see data in analytics for programs and category options through the new "can view data" sharing level. We have updated the sharing user *documentation* to reflect this: https://docs.dhis2.org/master/en/user/html/sharing.html We have also have some excellent new *videos* which elaborates on this topic - look for "Data level sharing": https://www.dhis2.org/spotlight The *motivation* behind this change in the access control model is: - It provides a single place to control access to DHIS 2 objects. The user role associations to data sets and programs have been removed and replaced by the mentioned sharing levels. - It opens for more flexibility in access control. Going forward we plan to introduce more fine-grained data level sharing and include support for entities like data elements and tracked entity attributes. - It allows better control over who can view data in analytics, in particular for program and tracker data. The 2.29 *upgrade* script will create a user group per user role and share those groups with the appropriate data sets and programs. You can of course opt not to run this part of the script and instead do the upgrade manually. https://github.com/dhis2/dhis2-utils/blob/master/resources/sql/upgrade-229.sql best regards, Lars PS. thanks Nick Dutta for excellent videos. -- Lars Helge Øverland Technical lead, DHIS 2 University of Oslo l...@dhis2.org https://www.dhis2.org
