Allowed file formats

What are allowed file formats for upload in communities?

Why PZIP is no longer allowed?

  • Hi Oto,

    Below is the list of allowed file extensions for direct attachment to a forum post. I have not made any changes to this recently that I can recall. If unsure, it is best to compress your files into a .ZIP. If you cannot use the .ZIP format or if the file is too large (the limit is currently set to 5 MB for forums), and you need to share it with Bentley Support, you can use the secure Sharefile upload method.

    First, the global white list of allowed file types is considered:

    123,3dm,3ds,3mx,3pc,3sm,7z,aac,ai,aiff,anl,art,asf,asx,avi,bak,bcf,bmp,cel,cfg,chm,chm,cit,cnx,config,cpt,csd,css,csv,ctb,ctl,ctlg,dat,db,def,dgn,dgndb,dgnlib,dgnws,dmg,doc,docx,doq,drw,dtm,dty,dwg,dwh,dxf,ecw,eml,etz,fbx,flac,flv,gif,gpj,gpk,gz,hmr,htm,html,ico,ics,idgndb,ifc,img,imodel,iTIFF,iTIFF64,itl,jp2,jpe,jpeg,jpg,jt,lmc,log,lpf,m4a,m4p,m4v,mdb,mdbx,mid,midi,mmv,mnu,mov,mp3,mp4,mpg,mpp,msg,msw,mvba,obj,ogg,pcf,pdf,pen,pltcfg,png,pps,ppt,pptx,prj,ps,psd,pset,psl,qt,ram,rar,rdl,rfa,rm,rsc,rss,rtf,sdp,set,sfa,shp,sid,sit,sitx,skp,sql,sqlite,stb,std,stdp,stsw,tbl,tg4,tif,tiff,tin,txt,ucf,upf,vcf,vcs,vsd,wav,wma,wmv,wpd,wps,wtg,xin,xlam,xls,xlsm,xlsx,xml,xsl,xssl,zip

    This is further limited by the application-specific allowed file types. For Forums, it is currently:

    123,aac,ai,aiff,art,asf,asx,avi,bak,bmp,cel,cfg,config,csd,css,ctb,db,dmg,dgn,dgnlib,dgnws,doc,docx,drw,dwg,dxf,eml,flac,flv,gif,gz,htm,html,ics,jpeg,jpg,log,m4a,m4p,m4v,mdb,mdbx,mid,midi,mmv,mov,mp3,mp4,mpg,mpp,msg,ogg,pcf,pdf,pltcfg,png,pps,ppt,pptx,ps,psd,qt,ram,rar,rdl,rm,rtf,sit,sitx,sql,sqlite,stb,std,sfa,shp,swf,tbl,tif,tiff,txt,ucf,vcf,vcs,wav,wma,wmv,wpd,wps,xls,xlsx,xml,zip,vsd,prj,ctlg,rss,cnx,cpt,etz,dat,lmc,msw,ico,tin,psl,xssl,xsl,lpf,gpk,ctl,sdp,3pc,gpj,dwh,stsw,dtm,itl,xin,dgndb,dty,imodel,def,pen,mvba,mnu,pset,set,rsc,upf,csv,3sm,3mx,xlsm,xlam,7z,bcf,ifc,3ds,idgndb,fbx,iTIFF,iTIFF64,jpe,sid,hmr,cit,tg4,ecw,jp2,doq,img,jt,obj,rfa,3dm,skp,wtg,anl,stdp
