SharePoint File Upload through Microsoft Flow

Hi,

 

I am looking to upload files to sharepoint through MS Flow. I have a custom Java Application, which would basically trigger a microsoft flow through a HTTP call. The Java Application would send the File to be uploaded to SharePoint in the JSON Request Payload.

 

I came to about the 100MB request size limitation of Microsoft Flow. However, my usecase warrants uploading files exceeding 100MB.

 

Is there a way I can upload files >100MB through Microsoft Flow?

Hi @namit_gupta,

 

I am afraid that it is not possible to upload file exceeding 100 MB.

Please check the following doc about limits and configuration for more details:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/limits-and-config

Which means that Flow itself has a limit 100 MB on message size/file size, even if the service supports 1 TB, only a 100 MB message/file can be used.

If you need more, please feel free to vote and comment the similar request at here:

Hi @v-yamao-msft,

 

Thanks for your response!

 

I understand that there are threshold limits w.r.t the request size in Microsoft Flow. I am exploring the possibility of splitting the file (> 100 MB) in chunks and then make multiple flow calls to upload these chunks to sharepoint.

 

I am keen to know whether sharepoint has some internal mechanism to combine the chunked files, when all the chunks are uploaded.

 

Please let me know your thoughts on this?

 

Regards,

Namit

Hi @namit_gupta,

 

I guess this thread on how to split large content Db into multiple files could be a reference for you:

https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/217046/third-party-software-that-splits-large-content...

However, posting this issue on SharePoint Forum will help you get the most qualified answers at here:

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
