Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA), when you try to create an Excel-Entity Mapping, the screen where Excel spreadsheet data should appear never loads and remains empty.  You go to Excel Upload > Excel-Entity Mappings and click on the "Add" button.  You enter a Mapping name and Description and then select an Excel file.  When you click on the "Arrow" button, nothing happens.  The data from the Excel spreadsheet never loads.

If using Tomcat, the following error appears in the Tomcat server's catalina.out file:

DEBUG - Returning ssh-rsa

If using Weblogic, the error is slightly different:

DEBUG - Returning ssh-rsa

Do you want to allow this host key? [Yes|No|Always]: java.io.IOException: Bad file descriptor

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to Unified Metadata Manager
  2. Go to Data Entry Forms and Queries > Excel Upload 
  3. Go to Excel-Entity Mappings and click on the Add button
  4. Enter a Mapping Name, Description, and select an Excel spreadsheet to load
  5. Click on the Arrow button

Nothing happens.
