Hi there,

I believe that by default Node.js does not have a hard limit on the upload file size. What is the exact error that you are getting?

Note that, there is a hard set 100s timeout limit for each request in the App platform itself for requests that unfortunately can’t be changed. However, if your upload request is timing out in let’s say 30 seconds that could be due to resource exhaustion.

Feel free to share the exact error and I should be able to advise you further.
