Reproducing the Issue

  5. Go to Scheduled Reports

"Enable Multiple Files in Batch publish" switch is not enabled in Provisioning.


Ask your partner or raise a support ticket to activate "Enable Multiple Files in Batch publish" in your system. We recommend to do this first in your test instance to confirm that it will work as expected, and then move the change to production.

Please note that the merge operation (available after the job is completed in Scheduled Reports page) can timeout or create memory issues in the server if used for a very large target population. It depends on the overall data and total file size and not specific to individual file size. It's recommended to download the individual files and use third party solutions to merge the files.
