    Hello Team,

     

    We have a requirement to allow .xlsm files for Service Catalog attachments. As of now Catalog is not accepting .xlsm (Macro enabled Excel files) and throwing a pop up error which says :

    May I have suggestion/way to add this in the acceptable file format list?

     

    Thanks

    You can allow for additional file types by adding the extension to the 'ApprovedUploadExtensions' list in ..\Service Catalog\view\conf\ESAPI.properties. Following is from a 14.1 server:

     

    HttpUtilities.ApprovedUploadExtensions=.gif,.tif,.tiff,.jpg,.jpeg,.png,.bmp,.docx,.xlsx,.pptx,.doc,.xls,.ppt,.zip,.jar,.apk,.rar,.pdf,.txt,.xml,.rtf,.properties,.log,.msg,.html,.avi
