Customer would like to upload content via the LMS import tool to their own server.


SAP SuccessFactors Learning - all supported versions

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Deployment Location for your own server in Admin> Content>Deployment Location
  2. Try uploading content
  3. The content is either not uploaded or cannot be launched


This can be caused by network or permissions issues


At present, we can only add SFTP account provided by iContent under Deployment Locations in LMS. 

Third-party content servers (SFTPs) account details cannot be added as deployment location in LMS and it is not supported at present due to security reasons. This is the current functionality of the system.
