Learn how to how to change the file size limits for attachments. On-premise customers only.

Answer

Yes. For On-premise (locally installed) customers only, follow the steps below to increase attachment file size limits. They cannot be changed for On-demand (hosted) customers. Doing so would affect all of our hosted customers.

VersionOne does not officially support this change, but you can change it yourself following the steps below. Also note that any VersionOne upgrade/update will overwrite the web.config file, so all your changes will be lost and will need to be re-done every time.

How To

Increasing the attachment file size limit, requires changing the web.config file as follows:

<httpRuntime> child element of the <system.web> section in the web.config

Also, add a maxRequestLength attribute and set its' value to the max number of KB (the default is 4096KB or 4MB).

 Example: Setting the file size limit to 10MB:

<httpRuntime enableVersionHeader="false" **maxRequestLength="10240"** />

 (Optional) You can also extend the executionTimeout attribute.

For more information about these attributes, refer to Working Around File Size Limitations for additional information.
