Unable to upload distribution file in Bloomreach Cloud


I created a new bloomreach hippo 12.5.0 project using below command.

mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:2.4:generate -DarchetypeRepository=https://maven.onehippo.com/maven2 -DarchetypeGroupId=org.onehippo.cms7 -DarchetypeArtifactId=hippo-project-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=12.5.0

mvn clean verify

mvn -P dist

After running above commands, myhippoproject-0.1.0-SNAPSHOT-distribution.tar.gz file created in \myhippoproject\target directory.

Whenever I try to upload this distribution file in Bloomreach Cloud, I get this error “The distribution file is invalid, probably some required jar files are missing.”

Please provide your inputs to resolve the same.


BRC has some requirements such as enabling lucene index export: https://documentation.bloomreach.com/bloomreach-cloud/reference-documentation/configure-experience-project-for-deployment-in-cloud.html

Hey thanks for the response. Yes, it worked for me, but I am not able to see channels or /site console.
Getting this message - “This perspective could not be loaded. This is caused by the CMS not being able to connect to the site, either because the site is down or due to a misconfiguration. Please contact your system administrator.”

You should fix your host configuration. Most likely the hst:cmslocation property should be set. Check out some documentation here (and possibly more regarding host config): https://documentation.bloomreach.com/12/library/enterprise/installation-and-configuration/configure-virtual-hosts-in-an-environment.html
