Data source local file upload size limit?

I get this error ( and it's sibling error in Edge ) when trying to upload a large CSV file so I assume there is a limit.   I looked through the docs for connectors - file system and didn't see any reference to a file size limit.   

I did find something on Community, and it referenced an XML config to change but since I'm using the current Cloud offering I don't have access.   ( a quick look through the CMC didn't turn up any options there either ).

 

Obviously I can work around this by uploading said file to S3 ( tested - works ) or GDrive ( not yet tested ) and loading from there, but

 

1) Is there a defined file size limit I can relay to my users ( i.e. if it's over a gig let's fine a cloud repository for it ) 

 

and

 

2) If we wanted to do something like the workaround found here: https://community.incorta.com/t/x1jd2c/whats-the-best-way-to-upload-a-large-flat-file-to-incorta ( basically working on the server directly ) is that something support would take on or is that just a "no go" zone with the Cloud offering?

 

Thx,

  • We do have a technical constraint defined in tomcat setting to limit the size of file can be uploaded.  When the limit is reached, we may get the message like

    org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase$SizeLimitExceededException

    But your error message "413 request entity too large" seems coming from the web server layer before reaching tomcat.

    Either ways, uploading such a large file over browser is not recommended.  Using external connectors such as S3 or GDrive sounds reasonable for me.
