Published workspace > workspace app. Won't let me upload data

I have a number of workspaces to allow users to convert data between various formats. After upgrading our server to Flow from Server 2023 I had to republish these to get them to work, and for the most part it seems ok. I register each workspace with the job submitter and data download services, and use $(FME_MF_DIR) for temp storage of the uploaded data.


So far so good...


Then there is that one workspace: It is defined the same way as the others, but this will not allow me to select "User Can Upload" when I define the workspace app. The other apps I set up with Service: Data Download and check User Can Upload. For this one workspace the option is not there unless I choose Service: Job Submitter, but then I am not able to download the results.


I can run the workspace manually in Flow, upload files and get a download link to the results, but can't get it to work as an app


Any ideas to what this can be?

It seems we may have found the answer to the above problem. It appears to have been a bugfix between Flow 2023.1.1.1 (the version we have installed) and 2023.2.1 that fixes the problem.


We have tested and confirmed that the workspace will publish as a workspace app in Flow 2023.2.1.
