Power BI Report Server - Excel file size hosting ... How to Increase the Maximum file size?

Hi

 

I downloaded and installed Power BI Report Server

 

1) How to increase the maximum file size?

         I am planning to host Excel file. Currently I am looking for changing the file size.

         I have around 200MB+ Excel files...

 

For SharePoint 2013, we can do like ... https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sammykailini/2013/11/06/how-to-increase-the-maximum-upload-size-...

 

2) In general, where can I find the documentation on configuration and its customization .... 

 

Thanks

Hi @sevenhills,

 

In SQL Server Management Studio, connect to your Power BI Report Server instance, right click this instance, open its server properties, there is a MaxFileSizeMb property under Advanced tab that allows you to limit the file size uploaded to report server.

 

But it seems that the maximum file size is 100MB.

 

Reference: Setting a maximum file size in SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services

Thanks for the reply.

 

I hope they will change to 2GB. We are trying to host (pure) Excel files of size 200MB+ on the Power BI Report server.
