Note: The file should have all the bold bi service folder and message.po for all services.

Localization file structure

    • bi
    • bi-dataservice
    • ums


  2. To create locale file messages.po from messages.pot either using a manual edit option or an online tool for the BI and UMS services, refer to this.
