Issue/Introduction



Even if the File Limit Size is set at 50MB, it allows uploading a file much higher than 50MB in file size. Why is this permitted?

Environment

Release:
Component: USRD

Resolution

SDM enforces the File Size Limit on the compressed file and not the uncompressed version of it.

For example, if a file test.txt of size 60MB is being uploaded, compressed it might just be 1MB in size.  So SDM would allow you to upload the file.
 

Additional Information

SDM uses gzip algorithms to compress files.
