Reproducing the Issue

  1. Setup Deployment location 
  2. Content->Tools-Import Content 
  3. Import the content zip 
  4. Go through the steps 
  5. Run the import as soon as possible and schedule the job 
  6. Error is seen


The issue is due to content package ID which is auto generated. The one that is created by system is based on prefix and systemID from manifest file and is of 30 char long length. This generated package ID ends with '.'(dot) at the last and folder will be created with this package ID. Since there is no provision to create a folder that ends with "Dot" it fails.


This issue is fixed in b1808 as per LRN-35854


  1. Go to Import Content Tool
  2. Choose to import the ZIP file
  3. Rather than leaving the Content Package blank, place an ID
  4. Import the content
