2242065 - Courses imported via Deployment Location does not launch


  • Courses not launching after importing a content using Import Tool under Content > Tools.
  • When you look at the content object created, it will looks like the one below. Only the index.html file will be showing in the Filename.



  • SAP SuccessFactors Learning Management System

Reproducing the Issue

  • You may go to Content > Tools > Import Content and click Next.


  • Click Browse and select the course. Click Next.


  • Insert the necessary information to create the Content Package. Click Import Files.


  • It will succeed.


  • When launching the course, you will see the following screen:



  • When creating the Content Package, no Server Location was selected during the process.
  • If we look at Step 3 screenshot, there is no Server Location to select. This happens due to the workflow "Access Deploy Content To Server"missing to the Role assigned to the Admin User.


  • In order to add this workflow, you need first to check which role is assigned to your admin under System admin> Application Admin> Admin Management> Search for your admin ID> Click to Edit it> Go to Assigned Roles section.



  • After you confirmed which roles are assigned to your admin, you may add the missing workflow under System Admin> Security> Role Management> Search for the Role ID> Click to Edit it> Go to Workflows section:
    Check under Content if it contains “Access Deploy Content To Server”; If not, click on “Add one or more from list” select it and click Add.




  • After adding the workflow, you may try to import any content again and make sure to select the Deployment Location under Server Location.


  •  PLEASE NOTE: Courses that were imported before applying the fix were NOT imported to iContent Server. It means that you must reimport all of them.
  •  Also note: you may receive a similar error if not using iContent which must be provisioned in order to use deployment locations and the Import Tool, see KBA 2318240.
