Halo Lars and TeamThanks alot for this update hopefully it will enhance access 
and control rights to information sharing. Will it work within the cascade of 
hierarchy of orgunits or pegged on the level of user roles?Thanks

access control in 2.29 

Hi all,
in 2.29 we introduced a significant change in the access control solution in 
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 metadata2. Can view metadata
Data/events--3. Can capture and view data4. 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:

We have also have some excellent new videos which elaborates on this topic - 
look for "Data level sharing":

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.

best regards,

PS. thanks Nick Dutta for excellent videos.
