Uploading via /get_temporary_upload_link throws a 413 Payload Too Large error even for files <150MB

Uploading via /get_temporary_upload_link throws a 413 Payload Too Large error even for files <150MB

Hi!

 

I am uploading files (smaller than 150MB) via the temporarily upload links generated via the /get_temporary_upload_link call. This all worked fine, but since a few days the POST upload call to the generated upload link (e.g. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/apitul/1/bNi....)  is terminated with a 413 Payload Too Large error for files larger than a certain limit.

This test-file-5MB works fine but this larger test-file-10MB isn't working.

 

Is this a known bug or am I missing something?

 

Cheers!

The 413 error isn't longer thrown so it seems that this issue has been solved. Thanks!

It's kind of not working properly when I attach a file over >150Mb

@Ethan La Trobe Uni The /get_temporary_upload_link only supports file that are less than 150mb.
