Thank you for your interest in DHIS2 beta testing!
The current release candidate for DHIS2 2.30 is RC3, created on 1 July 2018. RC3 beta testing will run until 4 July 2018.
You can use the following resources to beta test the release candidate:
Feel free to use either one.
As with other DHIS2 demo systems, you can log on with admin/district.
If you wish to have an additional account please just ask firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unlike the other demo systems, these will not be reset each day, so you can keep data for the duration of the beta testing. This may be useful for setting up scenarios to demonstrate bugs clearly.
If the database becomes corrupt at some time, we may have to reset. If you let us know that you are testing on the beta demo servers (email email@example.com), then we can keep you informed of any changes.
A copy of the Sierra Leone test DB, matching that on the demo server, can be downloaded from here:

This differs from "dev" in that it will always build against the same version of the web apps, whereas dev will take the latest build of the apps.
Please feel free to test the functionality that is most important to you. But bear in mind that the focus for beta testing is
Regression: functionality that was working before but is now broken, and
Problems with new features
As background information see the information regarding fixed issues in 2.30 at the bottom of this page.
We would appreciate it if you could raise beta testing issues into the specially created Jira project "DHIS 2 2.30 Release Candidate" found here:
It would help us to have clear test steps to reproduce an issue, and it would be most convenient if you can first reproduce the problem on one of the demo servers.
If you are testing on your own system, please provide as much additional information as you can, such as screenshots, console and server logs, type of data, etc.
We do encourage you to test with your own database where possible, in order to test the most representative environments!
If you have questions at any time, please don't hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
