Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On Unifier : version 17.2.0.0

Expected Result: Partner company users should be able to upload files to Unifier.

Actual Result: The following error is thrown whenever trying to place files into the Upload window:

Upload Errors
Filename.*: file extension is not allowed

To reproduce: Try to add a file to the Upload window logged in on behalf of a Partner user created after the update to 17.2.0.0.

Changes

In version 17.2.0.0 Unifier support was enhanced for Document Attachment Whitelists.

Previously within Unifier, we supported the ability for customer to define a list of file types that are blocked from being uploaded into Unifier by way of the Configurator, which meant that the party responsible for maintaining the installation had to make any changes.

With this enhancement we moved this configuration to the Company properties, Security tab, so that the Company Administrators can define a list of file types that are allowed rather than those that are blocked.
