Large file uploads on personal environment

Is there a simple way to upload a file that larger than 500mb on a personal environment without timeouts? 

Hi Joel,

You only have 2gb in your personal environment, so that file takes away 25% of your storage.

I would upload it to AWS S3 storage. Forge component available for that. Of course OneDrive, Google drive, box etc also are options. For all forge components are available.

Hi Joel,

Beside the options Daniel gave you can also read/write to a temporary folder in file system as described here.

Thank you gentlemen, I will have a look at all the options and get back to you. 

I have been able to upload a large file, is it possible to now take that file and import it into an entity record in outsystems? Say the file is 1gb.. 

Solution

Hi Joel,

You shouldn't upload those huge files into entities. Keep them on filesystem or external storage and add the external reference to the entity.
