2767964 - Virus scan fail on file format with import content


When utilizing the import content tool, the following error is received during the Import Summary screen:

Error occurred while trying to scan the file  for virus. The status returned by virus scan service was 500.


SAP SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS) b1902+

Reproducing the Issue

Import any xlsx with name format using the extension repeated in the last of the file name, e.g. 1902_xlsx.xlsx


With the introduction of the virusscan configuration setting in 1902, this file naming is flagged.


Either of the following will resolve:

  • Rename your file to not include this extension in the name itself.
  • Disable the virus scan at System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > Web Security > enableVirusScan=false
    *Note SF LMS still has a tenant level virus scan and also one available on the sftp, so this setting is more for files not deployed to an iContent or deployment location.
