Create File on-prem using File system


I'm trying to create a excel file in a local system using data gateway connection. I'm using create file action of file system but unfortunately my flow did not create file which has size more than 2048 KB. i.e the file size is 4 mb, flow runs and file create in the folder is just 2048kb and flow fails with error of 504 bad gateway timeout error.

This is create file configuration.



the error I get when file size exceed 2048 KB

  "error": {
    "code": 504,
    "source": "",
    "clientRequestId": "67abb9cf-4e12-4e79-b258-302ee7cc0bce",
    "message": "BadGateway",
    "innerError": {
      "status": 504,
      "message": "The request to the on-premises data gateway has timed out.\r\nclientRequestId: 67abb9cf-4e12-4e79-b258-302ee7cc0bce",
      "error": {
        "message": "The request to the on-premises data gateway has timed out."
      "source": ""


Any Help would be appreciated.

Hi @Harry_G 


How long this process takes before it gets times out. Not sure the standard http time out is causing this.
