Over recent years, there has been an increased demand from practitioners, implementers and administrators wanting to use DHIS2 in more efficient ways that extends beyond the manual user interface.
“When I first started working as a DHIS2 Data Administrator, I wished I would have known about API capabilities in DHIS2. Utilizing the API really speeds things up and gives you information that you can’t easily get, or sometimes get at all through the user interface.”
- Megan Kill, BAO Systems
Do you find yourself needing to query your DHIS2 instance for more information than the user interface provides? Do you want to see reports that show the building blocks of your configuration and how metadata are related to each other?
