2427804 - Error 404 (File or directory not found) received when launching content


When launching content, a blank or 404 (File or Directory not found) error is received in the browser.



SAP SuccessFactors Learning


This error is caused by using special characters in the ID of the Content Object when setting it up initially as it will include an escape character in the launch path for the content which can result in double escapes due to back-end transcoding and URI normalization in the browser.



Do not use special characters including ';' or '.' or ',' or '-' or spaces in the Content Object ID when setting them up.
