Uploading or saving files with a .mp4 extension is not allowed

Hi, We get the error "Uploading or saving files with .mp4 extension is not allowed. Contact your administrator if you have any quetions" when using  "Upload" in Power BI Report Server(January 2019)

We were able to upload mp4 in previous versions.

Is there a whitelist of allowed extensions in Power BI Server?

Administrators can set the following properties in SSMS Advanced Properties for the server farm:

AllowedResourceExtensionsForUpload Set extensions of resources that can be uploaded to the report server. Extensions for built-in file types like *.rdl and *.pbix are not required to be included. Default is “*, *.xml, *.xsd, *.xsl, *.png, *.gif, *.jpg, *.tif, *.jpeg, *.tiff, *.bmp, *.pdf, *.svg, *.rtf, *.txt, *.doc, *.docx, *.pps, *.ppt, *.pptx”.

 

See how to do this here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/reporting-services/tools/server-properties-advanced-page-report...

Apologies for jumping onto an old thread but this doesn't work for me.

I'm using May 2021 Report server and have added the .mp4 to the AllowedResourceExtensionsForUpload config table, and restarted the Report server service but I get the generic "Something went wrong" error.

 

Looking in the RSPortal log file all I see is this error message:

 

 

ERROR|115|library|Throwing Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.ItemNotFoundException: , Microsoft.ReportingServices.Diagnostics.Utilities.ItemNotFoundException: The item '/test.mp4' cannot be found.;| RequestID = s_01073cb1-d1e2-4853-a792-3c6e85e8c9c7 

 

 

(The item exists on my hard drive)  Is there another setting that needs to change to allow this?

Many thanks

Thank you.

I have added .mp4 to AllowedResourceExtensionsForUpload in the ConfigurationInfo table and it fixed the problem.
