Overview - Understand the File Helpers Connector data limits and contributing factors
The File Helpers connector has two main functionalities;
- Reading a file
- Creating a file
Reading a file
The maximum file size is 6MB.
*The general limit for passing data between connector steps is 1MB. Passing data larger than 1MB may cause issues. More information on the data payload limits documentation.
Creating a file
When creating a file from a URL, the maximum file size is 5GB. This is the optimum file maximum however, there are multiple factors that may affect file creation such as file size, file type, download location, 3rd party speeds etc.
For example, if a 3rd party's file serving speed is quite slow the connector may time out if the file download takes longer than 15 minutes.
