I am trying to ingest a simple point shapefile in GEE from the asset tab of the Code Editor The program sent me back this error

"Task details: Asset ingestion: users/giuliocst/JesrAdbachPOINT

State: Failed

Started: 1m ago (2018-11-07 16:34:10 +0100)

Runtime: 7s

Id: LVKE25EJBW5AWJ6AVYPDCVKV

Error: File access denied: 'E1yLz1m5tKhVI1Io/Jesr Adbach POINT.shp'."

What I am missing? I am using the same procedure as always

  • What exactly is "the same procedure as always"? As a hunch - have you tried removing the spaces from the filename of the shapefile? – Kersten Nov 8 '18 at 21:37
  • Just a reminder, GEE will also report file access denied if your code editor account is not the one registered for GEE. Like I have two gmail accounts and one registered with GEE but another didn't. I encounter the error again and again until I realized the account issue. ?? How did you fix your problem,.. – user21081 Oct 8 '20 at 9:28

Earth Engine table ingestion currently fails for filenames that include spaces. I've filed a bug about this, but in the meanwhile the workaround is to replace the spaces with underscores (or some other character).

I faced the same problem and realized that the solution is to make sure your shapefile name has no spaces at all between the alphabets/numbers.

In your case you should replace your 'Jesr Adbach POINT.shp' to 'JesrAdbachPOINT.shp' or like Typer said, replace the spaces with underscores like this: 'Jesr_Adbach_POINT.shp'
