  • User with full permissions as collaboration manager not able to upload documents in Project > Collaboration tab
  • The job(Index contents and documents for searches) completes but when uploading a document with a valid extension, error messages appear
  • Accessing attachment fields in any object related pages is, or uploading to them produces an error

The error message observed in the UI could be:

Check the filestore configuration. If the file store is configured to store files on the server:

  1. Check if the the disk is full
  2. Check if file write permissions to the Clarity and Filestore folders are given
  3. If using Windows Services, check if the "Log on As" option is used. The user mentioned here should have access to read and write files from the filestore
