Enable option the upload additional filed when deploying ITX maps to SPE02.

Enable option the upload additional filed when deploying ITX maps to SPE02.

Currently there is no feature to deploy the supporting files such as schema xsd files which is required for ITX maps when we use Xerces imported type tree and for input validation.

ITX has capability to handle Excel and PDF, but because of not being able to upload a excel template used by map for generating excel output, we have lost this option on GIODE and hence many customer requirements were not met in recent days.

How will this idea be used?

Enable option the upload additional filed when deploying ITX maps to SPE02. This will help us to be able to upload supporting file that map needs during run time. Such as schema, template for excel and PDF.

    Apologies - I had posted a comment but I had entered it in the private section. Primarily we do not see an opportunity to deliver this in the near-term due to other priorites and with the age of this request, we are required to close it out if it is not going to be on the mid-term roadmap.
