Thread: BI 5.01 CE saiku file upload is not supported type

  1. #1

    Unhappy BI 5.01 CE saiku file upload is not supported type

    I try migrate saiku analysis files (*.saiku) generated in BI 4.8 CE to BI 5.01 CE and while uploading file (nevermind one file or zip archive) still see info:

    Upload Unsuccessful
    We really did try but that file type is not supported

    Even saiku file exported from another repo directory BI 5.01 (as a zip file) is not uploadable.
    Saiku is of courde installed from marketplace and i can generate new saiku files into repository "by hand".

    Any ideas ?

    You have to change your file biserver-ce -> pentaho-solutions -> system -> importExport.xml in 3 places to accept the .saiku files
    Hope this helps !

    In I had to change ImportHandlerMimeTypeDefinitions.xml in addition to ImportExport.xml (they are in same folder--see below). Two changes:

    <MimeTypeDefinition mimeType="atext/plain" hidden="false">



    With this change the upload feature with PUC works. Also, now imports .saiku files.
