When Using Primavera Web Services Import or Export Temp Files on the Server Are Created and Never Deleted (Doc ID 2263080.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2019

Applies to:

Primavera Web Services - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


ImportExport folder is filling up with temp files that are not being deleted. The files are in the format ws_exporter_XXXXXXXXXXXX.XML. This causes an error to occur when the drive runs out of space. For example, " /home/papp/ImportExport/Export/ws_exporter_1476813328662.xml (No space left on device)".

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run and XML import or Export using P6 Web Services
2. A temporary file in the format of ws_exporter*.xml is created on the P6 Web Services server
3. Eventually the directory fills up with temporary files that do not get removed.
