2412707 - File attachment size exceeds the maximum allowed


Is there a way to increase attachment size?

Error: File attachment size exceeds the maximum allowed


SuccessFactors Learning Management System (LMS) - All Supported Versions


To increase the maximum size for an attachments:

  1. Login as LMS admin and navigate to System Admin > Configuration > System Configuration > Attachment
  2. When in Edit mode, search for maximumSizePerAttachmentKB:

# The maximum size of a single attachment in KB. 1KB=100024 bytes

    3. Change attachment size as appropriate and Apply Changes.

In the example above, the maximuim size for an attachment is now set to 25MB. Please be mindful of not setting this limit to a value which is unreasonable as it may cause issue when trying to either send an email with a large attachment, or there may be a limit on the size of an attachment the receiver is allowed to accept.
