I am attaching some *.svg files to a test for upload which appears to work except that when clicking on the attachment link in the dashboard I see an empty page… Are there limitations to what can be attached?



This what I see when I go to the test:

I can click on the gold boxes but that takes me to an essentially empty page.

@zackgalbreath This has been a long-standing issue with CDash (in my experience). I haven’t been able to reliably reproduce it in the past, as sometimes it didn’t work, sometimes it did. The link to the bug tracker on is broken, so perhaps you might want to create an issue for this problem. First google hit was outdated. Bugs can be reported here:

In case it helps, my previous investigations into why this might be occurring made me suspect problems with SELinux or other permission-related issues on the CDash server. I can’t provide any further details than that as I no longer have access to that system. You could try exploring that and see if you make any progress. I found limited to no useful info in the logs CDash generated though.

I’ll take a closer look at this locally to see if it’s a problem with CDash & svg images, or something else entirely. I’ll report back with my findings.

In my case, the problems did not seem to be restricted to any particular file type.

It looks like the recent CDash upgrade must have fixed this problem.

Here’s an example of it working on

It’s a little hokey how it gets wrapped up into a tarball by ctest, but the content is faithfully preserved.
