Get S3 Object Content Size Limit



In testing a flow under a per-user plan using the action Get S3 Object Content, we are seeing the error message


The object's content size is '214662658' bytes. The connector operation allows fetching objects up to '3670016' bytes.
clientRequestId: <snip>


I can't find mention of file size limit in the documentation, nor does it seem that "3.67 MB" would be a file size limit.  Has anyone run into this issue - are we doing something wrong?



Regular Visitor

'3670016' is definitely an odd choice, but it's a multiple of 1024 (1k), so I assume it's a real limit that they picked for whatever reason (it's weirdly 2^19*7). It would be nice if they added some documentation about it.


Regardless, '214662658' bytes (214mb) is a large file and likely to be over most limits for the Power Automate system. Maybe someone from MSFT could chime in, but I think you'll have to find another solution if the file sizes are that large.

This fails for a 5MB file with the same error.  Honestly, the level of support/attention for fundamental things is so lacking.  I'd rant on Twitter or elsewhere, if only I knew who at MS would be looking in order to get the right eyes on this for some kind of response.




Yeah, it's frustrating that it's such a low limit, 3.5mb seems really smal. What are you trying to do, maybe there's a workaround?
