JR53458: MIME TYPE FILTER IS NOT EFFECTIVE FOR ALL FILE TYPES
Direct links to fixes
Closed as program error.
For some documents, the MIME type is either too general or is not detected correctly, reducing the effectiveness of the MIME type filter. For example, files from Microsoft Office 2007 and later (.xlsx, .xlsm, .docx, etc) are detected as either application/octet-stream or application/x-zip-compressed in the browser, which is incorrect or too general.
No additional information is available.
A fix is available for IBM BPM V184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 that introduces additional functionality to the product with the use of a server-side configuration option that allows an optional whitelist of file extensions to be specified in addition to the optional whitelist of MIME-types. Only extensions in the file extension list may be uploaded. The following example is a sample configuration of the new option, which you can configure in the 100Custom.xml file: <server> <!-- extension white list which specifies extensions accepted for --> <!-- upload to document list or document attachment --> <document-attachment-accepted-extensions> <!-- specifies whether to allow a document with no extension for upload --> <allow-null-extension>false</allow-null-extension> <!-- lists the extensions allowed for upload --> <extension>xlsx</extension> <extension>docx</extension> </document-attachment-accepted-extensions> </server> Note: If the whitelist of MIME-types is configured in addition to the whitelist of file extensions, documents that match either of the whitelists (MIME-types or extensions) may be uploaded.
