2551816 - The content you are importing is not supported in this version. Please delete the package error in SAP Analytics Cloud


The following error occurs when you try to upload a backup tgz file created by the Deployment > Import option in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC):

  • The content you are importing is not supported in this version. Please delete this package.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Click Main Menu > Deployment > Import.
  2. Click the '+' icon to upload a .tgz file and follow the instructions.
  3. Observe the error.


  • The content that is getting imported is no longer supported for the version of SAC.
  • Caution: "It is not recommended to use exports to archive content. Content can only be imported in the same version of the application from which it was exported, or the subsequent version. After your system is upgraded again, you cannot import the content." 
  • You cannot import content to a version older than the version that was exported from.


  • The behavior is by design and documented in "Importing and Exporting Content as Files".
  • SAP recommends importing any exported .tgz files within the valid timeframe of 1 version, so that your content is compatible with the latest version of SAC.
