2344910 - PxP (Birt) Report Template Error in Adhoc Reports

Symptom

PxP (Birt) Report Template Error in Adhoc Reports

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Home> Analytics >Reporting> Adhoc Reports of the instance.
  2. In an existing report, try to upload a custom templates.
  3. When attempting to load, an error message is appearing stating "This type of custom templates is not supported." Upload a report layout template.

 

Cause

Please note that apparently the extension(.rpttemplate) used in the  present template is likely to give out this error. The error to upload the right ”report layout” is expected as the format being used here isn’t correct. As per the design, the right template needs to be used in order for Adhoc to behave the way it should.

Resolution

Kindly change the extension to (.rptdesign) and upload the same as the system only has validation for .rptdesign templates. This should resolve the issue at hand.
