NodeJS App Service: upload requests are rejected when file is over 500kb

Asha 59 1 Reputation point

We have a NodeJS app deployed on app service Linux (zip deploy)

In the app, there is a file upload form. It works well in local, for all file sizes.

When we deploy on Azure, the file upload only works for files under 500kb. When trying with a file above 500kb, we get a 413 error which is not returned by the app but by Azure itself.

How could we configure the app service to raise this limit ?

    Hello @Asha 59 We understand you are receiving 413 errors when uploading files to your web app.

    By default, the value is defined to a low number. You would need to use something like the below, which will define the limit.

    app.use(bodyParser.json({limit:  '10mb'}));  

    Please let us know if you have further questions or concerns.
