Contact Technical Support if the issue continues to affect work in a supported release.


  • Instead of using the Upload Project tool to upload custom projects, including reports and Business Analyst data source (BDS) layers, manually add the project files to the Esri Business Analyst Server directories, and restart the DefaultMap service.
  • For reports, store the report folder at a location such as the following, <a href="file:C:/ArcGIS/Business" target="_blank">C:\ArcGIS\Business</a> Analyst\US_2014\Datasets\Report Templates\Custom Report Templates\USA_ESRI_2014\Summary.
  • For custom BDS layers, copy the components of the BDS layer from <a href="file:C:/My" target="_blank">C:\My</a> Output Data\Custom BDS Layers, and save the components to a folder. Store the folder at <a href="file:C:/ArcGIS/Business" target="_blank">C:\ArcGIS\Business</a> Analyst\US_2014\Data\UserData.
