Blocking File Types (Controlled Availability)

Note: This feature is in controlled availability, and will be released for general availability soon. To gain early access, contact your Customer Success Manager.

What's New

For security reasons, Clarizen blocks by default a number of file types from being uploaded to the system. You can now add additional file types to block, based on your security requirements.


  • Add additional file types to block as new security requirements arise
  • Block file types such as HTML, which can include scripts with malicious code

How it Works


The default file type extensions that are blocked are:

.exe, .scr, .bat, .com, .vbs, .js, .vb, .cmd, .reg, .hta, .iso, .encrypted-rar, .lnk, .mdb, .torrent, .wri, .msi

A new Additional Unsupported File Types system setting lets you add additional file extensions separated by commas.
