SAP WPB: How to upload zip files via SAP WPB?

0 Kudos

Hello. I will be grateful if the experts help. There are very few questions on this subject.

I create DKP objects on SAP Workforce Performance Builder Version 9.5 (SAP WPB) to publish distance learning courses on the LSO portal (SAP NetWeaver Portal). There is no problem publishing these courses on the portal.

But now there is a need to upload courses offered by another company. They provide distance learning courses in the form of SCORM files archived in a ZIP file. When I upload this file to our portal and integrate it with the LSO module, the file does not open correctly. I checked: no file that was uploaded to the portal as a ZIP file is displayed correctly. The system either writes Error 404, or offers to download the ZIP file to the computer.

The documentation says that SAP Workforce Performance Builder Version 9.5 supports SCORM files. Question: why SCORM files archived in ZIP do not display correctly on the portal? What is the reason?
How to upload zip files via SAP WPB so that they work and appear the same as published DKP files?

Hi Elnur,

Yes you are correct. There is no way to playback SCORM content created in another system in Enable Now / WPB. SCROM content must be loaded into and run through a Learning Management System (LMS); that could be an SAP LMS or another third-party LMS. Enable Now Manager is not an LMS. Hope this helps.

Hi Elnur,

It sounds like you are attempting to load a SCORM file (zip file) into Enable Now and publish it for use through Manager. If this is what you are attempting to do, this is not possible. Enable Now provides the functionality to publish Enable Now content as SCORM through Producer, the authoring tool, but does not provide the ability to run SCORM content published from another toolset. If I've misunderstood your question please let me know and I will take another look.

Thanks for the response, Shane.

I will try to describe the problem more correctly.
I am trying to publish a SCORM file that was created on a system that is not related to SAP or SAP WPB. Using SAP WPB Producer, I publish this zipped SCORM file to our portal without any problems. But unlike files that were created using SAP WPB Producer, these SCORM files created in a third-party system do not display correctly on the user side.

Do I understand correctly that distance courses in SCORM format, which are not created in SAP WPB Producer, are not supported by our system, that is, we cannot view them as a full-fledged distance course?

Regards,

Elnur
