Unable to upload document using filepath



User is unable to upload a document using a 'FilePath' control on a data-portal.

Error Messages Can't continue with file upload. "" is not a file.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Portal and supporting Harness.
  2. Add 'FilePath' control to the section of that Harness.
  3. Also, add a button to call the out of the box activity UploadFile.
  4. Launch the Portal and click the button to upload a file and observe no upload occurs and an error is displayed.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.

The 'FilePath' control saves the attached data once a submit event is fired.

​The saved data then is available for use to the UploadFile activity typically configured as a post-processing activity on a flow action rule.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. ​Update the portal configuration to load the FilePath coupled section from a modal dialog configured like the out of the box example seen below..
  2. pzUploadFileWithBrosweOption has the activity UploadFile configured as a post -processing activity.
