By default, you cannot export bitmaps although you can upload them and view them just fine. To enable bitmaps for export, you will need to alter your contour-security.xml located at [Tomcat]/webapps/contour/WEB-INF/. Navigate to the section SECURITY INTERCEPTOR and add the following lines at the end of the /attachment section: /attachment/*/*.bmp=ROLE_ANY /attachment/*/v/*.bmp=ROLE_ANY Save file, then restart Tomcat.
