Security error while save pdf files in portal

I am using SAP EHSM 1.0 a portal based application for SAP EH&S. It uses ADS for generating interactive forms. Forms are getting generated with out error but when saving it the portal throws the below error

Upload of this file type (application/pdf) is not allowed (security issues)

I thought its an security related to issue with ADS but then when I tried to upload a PDF while from my desktop and I got the same error.

Is there a setting in NetWeaver portal to allow PDF extension. Please let me know. Thanks.

Thanks

    Hi Pugazh,

    I don't think there is any setting in Portal to allow download or upload.

    Are you trying to download or upload thru a particular folder ? Check for that Folder permissions. You can try to download in MyDocuments or in any general folder and check ? Did you try that ?

    Regards,

    Arjun

      Pugazh,

      Can you elaborate? We're working on SAP EHS application integration with SAP Portal and facing the same issue. I am able to upload .txt files to an Incident, but not a .ppt, .jpg, or other file types.

      Thanks!

      Hi Rich -

      We resolved this with configuration on ABAP side. Unfortunately, I can't find my notes of the exact path, but you should be able to find it via SPRO. Basically, there's a transaction/screen that allows you to configure additional MIME types. For whatever reason, .jpg, .pdf, etc are not set by default.

      Hope this helps.
