Issue while Uploading Files larger than 5MB using the API

Hi,

 

I'm trying to upload files using the SOAP API using vb.net.

I follow this basic scenario:

- 1 Createmessage with entity document, with file content

- 1 Createmessage to link document to other entity.


Everything is ok until I face a file larger than 5MB, then the upload fails.

Is there another method in the API that would allow to upload larger files?

Thanks,

regards,

Hi thanks a lot for your reply,

The error says "Max field length exceeds 5 Mb" . however I did managed to found a solution today.

For people who might end up on this thread here is what I did:

- Instead of sending the file as part of the CreateMessage for the document (in the field "content"), if the file is more that 5 Mb, I send content as empty

- Then call getUploadUrl

- Do a POST of the file on this url, while providing the document Id from the first call.

- Then continue as usual to attach the file to desired parent entity.
