Controlling the File Types Allowed for Upload

By default, all file types can be uploaded to your computer through the Web Console, REST APIs, or Workflows. You can control the file types for upload by configuring the ExcludedExtensionsForUpload global parameter in the CommServe database.


  1. On the CommServe computer, add the ExcludedExtensionsForUpload global parameter with the file extensions that must be excluded for upload:
    Property Value
    Name ExcludedExtensionsForUpload
    Category CommServDB.GxGlobalParam
    Type String
    Value Type the file extensions separated by commas. For example, .dll, .bat.

    For instructions on adding the global parameter from the CommCell Console, see Add or Modify an Additional Setting.

  2. Restart the IIS services on the Web Server computer.
